Driver Critically Injured in Single-Vehicle Crash in St. Pete
Alcohol impairment was a factor, according to the St. Petersburg police.
ST. PETERSBURG – A St. Petersburg man suffered life-threatening injuries Thursday (Nov. 23) when his SUV hit a tree after he lost control of it, the St Petersburg Police Department said.
Travis James Mobley Jr., 22, of St. Petersburg, was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg after the crash. He was listed in critical condition early this morning (Nov. 24).
The crash happened about 10:40 p.m. on 37th Street S. Mobley was driving a 2004 Ford Expedition south on 37th when, for an unknown reason, he drove into the northbound lane.
Police said Mobley tried to get back into the southbound lane, but it appeared that he over-corrected. The Ford lost traction and began to slide out of control as it left the west side of the
roadway. The front of the Ford struck a utility pole, sending the SUV sliding clockwise across 29th Avenue S. It then slid over the south curb of 29th Avenue and the left side of the Ford hit a tree at the driver’s door before coming to rest.
There were no other occupants in Mobely’s vehicle and no other vehicles involved in the crash. Officers said alcohol impairment was a factor.
