Mother and Infant Die In Tampa-Area Crash

A mother and her infant have been left dead after an accident on U.S. 27 in Frostproof this week. Twenty-seven year old Candy Greathouse and her four month old daughter, Laaina, were pronounced dead after their car crossed a median and into oncoming traffic. Greathouse’s three-year-old daughter was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital, where she remains in “very critical condition.”

Greathouse was driving a Toyota Corolla, which was crushed upon impact. The left rear door was pushed into the middle of the car and the force of the impact sent the Corolla back into the median. Other cars collided as a result of the accident as well; a pickup truck and tractor-trailer jackknifed and rolled over on the shoulder of the road. Both drivers were taken to Lake Wales Medical Center to treat their injuries.

The Sheriff’s department is still trying to determine what caused Greathouse to cross over the median. On Friday, another man died in a three-vehicle accident near the same stretch of road. In that instance, another driver drove over the median and crashed into Victor Lopez’s car. The collision sent Lopez’ car into the path of other drivers and he was hit by an oncoming car.
