Palm Harbor, FL (July 4, 2021) – A three-vehicle accident in Palm Harbor ended in the death of one person and the injury of another on Sunday, July 4.
Local reports indicated that the deadly crash occurred at the crossing of Omaha Street and Manning Road at around 10 a.m. that morning. Initial sources revealed that a 39-year-old Dunedin woman was traveling southbound in an SUV at the time of impact. At the same time, a 61-year-old Dunedin woman was driving an SUV northbound as a 40-year-old Palm Harbor man operated a passenger bus.
The 39-year-old woman reportedly lost control, crashing into the front-end of the 61-year-old woman’s SUV. The first vehicle then entered the path of the bus and was hit again. Emergency responders had to extricate the drivers of both SUVs. The 39-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and the 61-year-old woman was transported to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg for treatment.
