Driver Critical After Single-Car Crash in Clearwater
Clearwater public safety officials said the damage to city property is estimated to be about $75,000.
CLEARWATER – A Largo man suffered life-threatening injuries in a one-car crash on Court Street, a Clearwater public safety spokesman said.
William Fralin, 48, of Largo, was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg with life-threatening injuries. He remains in critical condition.
The crash happened at Court Street and Hillcrest Avenue. Clearwater Fire and Rescue was called to the scene about 2:51 a.m. today (June 26).
Officials said Fralin was driving a 2002 Toyota Camry westbound on Court Street when it left the road, struck a couple of street signs and then slammed into a large pole holding traffic signals. Early investigation indicated the car flipped multiple times. Debris from the car and the traffic signals was strewn over a large area and onto the campus of St. Cecelia Catholic School.
Speed and alcohol are thought to be factors in the crash, officials said.
A small portion of Hillcrest Avenue remained closed late this morning while city crews worked to repair the traffic signals at the intersection. Clearwater officials estimated there was about $75,000 in damage to city property.
