MANATEE -- A 24-year-old Bradenton woman died following a single-vehicle crash shortly after noon Saturday in Manatee County.
Andrea Faith Rivas Lopez was a passenger in a 1995 Mazda Protege going south on U.S. 301 just south of Manatee Road when the vehicle was driven off the road onto the grassy west shoulder, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.
The driver then over corrected, crossed back across the road onto the east shoulder and hit a tree, the report states. The vehicle then overturned onto the driver's side.
Lopez, who was wearing her seat belt, was pronounced dead at 4:04 p.m. at Blake Medical Center, according to the report.
A 34-year-old female passenger in the vehicle was taken to Manatee Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. The driver's name was not listed and a release said he or she was uninjured.
