Three Seriously Injured in Roosevelt Boulevard Crash
One driver ran a red light, FHP troopers say.
PINELLAS COUNTY – Three drivers were seriously injured in a crash on Roosevelt Boulevard on Thursday (Dec. 12) morning, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Ryan Paul Livingston, 39, of New Smyrna Beach; Sharon Loar, 65, of Tampa; and Naresh Emke, 37, of St. Petersburg, were all taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg with serious injuries. Troopers said Livingston was not wearing a seat belt.
The crash happened about 10:58 a.m. at the intersection of Roosevelt Boulevard with 28th Street N and Lake Carillon Drive in Pinellas County.
Troopers said Livingston was driving a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze northeast on 28th Street N when he ran a red light at the Roosevelt Boulevard intersection. The Chevrolet hit the 2015 Jeep Wrangler that Loar was driving northwest on Roosevelt.
The Jeep rotated clockwise on impact until it was headed north. It overturned onto its driver’s side and came to rest on Lake Carillon Drive.
The Chevrolet also rotated clockwise on impact and its rear end hit the left side of the 2011 Toyota Corolla that Emke was driving northwest on Roosevelt.
The Chevrolet continued rotating after hitting the Toyota, crossed the center median safety zone and entered the intersection opening of Lake Carillon Drive. The Chevrolet then crossed over the raised concrete curb of the center median on Lake Carillon and crossed the southwest travel lanes of Lake Carillon Drive before coming to a rest.
Alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
Troopers said charges are pending.
