PALM HARBOR – Both drivers were seriously injured in a traffic crash on Alderman Road on Tuesday (April 17) night, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
John A. Brnich, 74, of Palm Harbor, was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point. Nicolas G. Louis, 30, of Tarpon Springs, was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital. Both were in serious condition.
Robert S. Marshall, 51, of Palm Harbor, a passenger in Brnich’s SUV, suffered minor injuries but was not taken to a hospital.
Brnich was cited for failure to yield, making turn under red signal, troopers said.
The crash happened about 8:57 p.m. at the intersection of Alderman Road and Omaha Street. Troopers said Brnich was driving a 2016 Kia SUV north on Omaha. When he reached the intersection with Alderman, he failed to stop for a red traffic signal. He entered the intersection and collided with the 1992 Jeep that Louis was driving.
After the impact, the Jeep overturned and Louis, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the vehicle.
