PINELLAS COUNTY – The passenger in a car was critically injured Wednesday (April 4) by a piece of metal that hit her when it crashed through the windshield, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Margaret Musto, 65, of St. Petersburg, was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa in critical condition.
The incident happened about 11:15 a.m. on the Pinellas side of northbound I-275 on the Howard Frankland Bridge. Troopers said Glen Musto, 62, of St. Petersburg, was driving a 2017 Lexus RX300 approaching the hump of the bridge behind a vehicle described as a red sedan.
The sedan ran over a piece of metal laying in the roadway, which, when hit, was propelled toward the Lexus. The metal hit the Lexus’ hood, then penetrated the windshield and hit Ms. Musto.
