Woman Hospitalized after Car Overturns in Dunedin Crash
The other driver was not injured, Pinellas deputies said.
DUNEDIN – Pinellas deputies are investigating a traffic collision that sent one woman to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Burgandie Ross, 26, of Palm Harbor, was taken by helicopter to the hospital with what appeared to be life-threatening injuries, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.
The accident happened about 3:45 p.m. Saturday (May 14) near the intersection of CR 1 and Solon Avenue in Dunedin. Deputies said Ramon Miranda, 28, of Largo, was stopped in his 2005 Ford F-250 truck in the westbound left turn lane on Solon Avenue at the CR 1 traffic signal. Ross was driving a 2011 Mazada Miata west on Solon Avenue approaching the same intersection. Witnesses told deputies that Ross’ Miata was traveling at a high rate of speed when it sideswiped the passenger side of Miranda’s Ford truck causing minor damage.
After the initial impact, Ross’s Mazda continued westbound on Solon Avenue through the intersection and struck the west curb of the intersection, deputies said. The Mazda continued out of control through a grassy easement, striking a large tree, a chain link fence, and some smaller trees. The impact caused the vehicle to rollover and come to its final rest in the upright position. Deputies said they believe impairment and speed may have been factors in the crash.
