Two Die in Park Boulevard Crash
Pinellas sheriff’s deputies said speed and alcohol were factors in the crash. They said criminal charges are pending against one driver.
SEMINOLE – A father and son died Saturday (July 28) in a four-vehicle crash on Park Boulevard in Seminole, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said.
Edward Scott Delzer, 59, of New Port Richey, and his father, Harvey Vern Delzer, 86, of Madeira Beach, died at the scene. James Harrison Wolf, 60, of Seminole, one of the other drivers, was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg with non-life-threatening injuries.
The crash happened about 6:56 p.m. at the intersection of Park Boulevard and 104th Lane.
Deputies said Wolf was driving his 2005 Chevrolet SUV westbound in the median lane of Park Boulevard approaching the intersection of 104th Lane. Investigators said Wolf failed to stop for a red traffic light and hit the rear end of a 2001 Lexus being driven by Edward Delzer as it was stopped on Park waiting at the red traffic light. Harvey Delzer was a passenger in the Lexus.
Witnesses told investigators the force of the impact pushed Mr. Delzer’s Lexus and Wolf’s Chevrolet into the eastbound lanes of Park Boulevard.
Mr. Delzer’s Lexus hit a 2017 Chrysler van driven by Kelly Shallow, 38, of Gulfport, who was traveling eastbound on Park. Wolf’s Chevrolet struck a 2015 Infiniti SUV driven by Michael Young, 52, of Seminole, who was also traveling eastbound.
Paramedics from Seminole Fire Rescue responded to the scene.
Because of the severity of the crash, deputies closed Park Boulevard for several hours while they conducted their investigation.
Investigators say speed and alcohol are factors in the crash. Criminal charges are pending for Wolf, deputies said.
