 A wreck on Interstate 75 in Brandon left two women critically injured.

Saturday afternoon, Tenisha S. Ramnath lost control of her vehicle, ending in a wreck and critical injuries for her and her passenger, 34-year-old Chandradaye Rampersad.

Florida Highway Patrol reported 26-year-old Ramnath was driving a 2006 Mitsubishi Outlander north on I-75 at about 2:30 p.m. near State Road 60 when she lost control of her vehicle. The SUV veered across the highway and into a center median. It then crashed into the concrete barrier wall and flipped over it. Upon flipping, the SUV landed upside down on its roof on a concrete embankment. It then overturned again into an upright position just north of the CSX railroad tracks.

Both Ramnath and Rampersad were taken to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition.

The wreck remains under investigation.
