    Woman killed, 2 hurt in head-on collision


    © St. Petersburg Times, published November 2, 2000

    EAST LAKE -- A Tarpon Springs woman was killed and another person suffered life-threatening injuries in a head-on collision on Keystone Road on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

    Highway patrol Sgt. Paul Fruik said a Dodge Intrepid was going east on Keystone Road when the driver crossed over the center line and crashed into a Chevrolet Corsica heading west.

    Fruik would not release the names of any of the three people involved in the accident because their families had not been notified.

    The cars ended up badly mangled on the north shoulder of Keystone Road at Old East Lake Road.

    Fruik said investigators had not determined why the driver of the Intrepid veered into the oncoming lane.

    "It's still under investigation," he said.

    The driver of the Corsica was pronounced dead at the scene, Fruik said. The driver of the Intrepid was taken to Helen Ellis Memorial Hospital with life-threatening injuries, he said. A passenger in the Intrepid was flown by helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. The passenger's injuries were serious, he said, but not life-threatening.

    Traffic was backed up for miles in both directions of Keystone Road for several hours while emergency workers and troopers cleared the wreckage and investigated the crash.
