Last Friday night in West Park, FL, 20 year old Britania Hemmings was on her way home from work as a passenger in her best friends car when a black Dodge Charger ran 2 lights and crashed into them, sending their vehicle into the wall of a beauty salon. Sadly, Britania died on the scene. The other woman suffered serious spinal and internal injuries. The driver of the vehicle that hit the women has been charged with knowingly driving without a valid license, and running the stop sign. More charges are pending.
Britania is the daughter of WZOP/WZPP on air personality, DJ Sting aka Gregory Hemmings. The entire WZOP family extends their sincere condolences to DJ Sting and his family during this difficult time.
Britania was a very happy and positive young woman with aspirations of serving in the military. She migrated to Florida from Jamaica in 2015. Britania was also an aspiring actress who had been working on a film before her passing.
