St Petersburg, FL (October 10, 2021) – A man was left with critical injuries following a multi-vehicle accident in St. Petersburg on Friday, October 8.
The accident occurred at the 1700 block of 34th Street N. at around 5:30 p.m. Local authorities revealed that 24-year-old Brandon Heric of St. Petersburg was driving a 1993 Honda Del Sol northbound on the roadway. At the same time, 40-year-old Nicholas Limoges of St. Petersburg was headed south in a white 2020 Mercedes Sprinter van.
Witnesses revealed that Heric sped through a red light before losing control and crashing into the springer van. Heric then crashed into a black 2018 Ford F150 driven by 75-year-old Jerry Carreno of St. Petersburg. He was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.
Multiple other people were hospitalized in the accident, including Carreno, Pamela Gilzow, 74, and Jalissa Watson, 31. An ongoing crash investigation is underway.
