The woman killed in Friday's wreck on McMullen-Booth Road has been identified as 26-year-old Jennifer Nolletti of Dunedin.
Authorities said she was riding in a Toyota sport utility vehicle headed south on McMullen-Booth about 6:24 p.m. The driver, Nick Nolletti, 57, tried to make a left turn onto Ruth Eckerd Hall Drive when the vehicle was struck by a northbound Nissan convertible driven by James Fancher, 24, of Clearwater, police said.
Fancher apparently entered the intersection against a red light, police said.
Jennifer Nolletti was thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene. Fancher, Nick Nolletti and another passenger were taken to area hospitals with injuries that weren't considered life-threatening, police said.
No charges had been filed on Saturday, but an investigation was in progress.
