Man Killed In Horrific 3 Vehicle Crash In Polk County

A three-vehicle crash occurred near Lakeland Thursday, October 26, 2023, resulting in the death of one person, and injuries to two others.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office and Polk County Fire Rescue were dispatched at about 4:44pm, to the crash on Ewell Road, about a quarter mile west of Old Highway 37.
Upon arrival of first responders, 49-year old Thomas Holloway of Plant City was found deceased in his vehicle.

The other two drivers were identified as 53-year old Jose Castro of Lakeland and 26-year old Logan Barrand of Lakeland. They were both transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Mr. Holloway was the driver of a gray 2020 Kia Soul, and Mr. Castro and Ms. Barrand were driving a white 2019 Chevrolet Silverado pickup and a silver 2009 Hyundai Sonata, respectively.

During the investigation at the scene, Ewell Road was closed in both directions for about three-and-a-half hours.

According to the preliminary investigation, based on statements and evidence, Mr. Holloway’s Kia was traveling west on Ewell Road, Mr. Castro’s Chevy was eastbound on Ewell followed by Ms. Barrand in her Hyundai.

For unknown reasons, the Kia crossed over the center line and sideswiped the Chevy truck. The Kia then struck the Hyundai with enough force that the Kia’s engine became completely detached.

All three drivers were wearing their seat belts.

The investigation is ongoing, but no charges are anticipated.
