Two Dunedin Men Injured in Overnight Crash on Ulmerton Road
Two men are hospitalized after a dump truck and car collided, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
UPDATE: Driver of the speeding vehicle Cameron Bosley was upgraded to fair condition on Tuesday evening, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
A Volvo crashed into a dump truck on Ulmerton Road and 66th Street North around 2:30 a.m. today.
The car was traveling west in the center lane at a high speed when the driver tried to change lanes and pass a dump truck traveling in the same lane. The car hit the back of the truck near the intersection of 66th Street, according to a Florida Highway Patrol release.
Volvo passengers Michael Edward Graziano, 23, and driver Cameron Bosley, 24, both of Dunedin, were taken to Bayfront Medical Center. Graziano's injuries are critical and Bosley's injuries are serious.
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that seat belts were not being used. The crash was not alcohol related.
The driver of the truck, Steven Edward Brady, 57, of Lakeland, was not injured in the crash, investigators report.
Investigators closed the road for two hours. It has since been reopened.
The investigation is ongoing.
Bosley was arrested in Pinellas County in 2005 on charges of reckless driving, fleeing or eluding law enforcement at a high speed, and driving with a suspended or revoked license, according to records from the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
The other man in the car, Michael Edward Graziano, is the brother of John Graziano, who suffered severe brain damage in a 2007 Clearwater crash involving Nick Bollea, son of wrestler Hulk Hogan, according to the Tampa Bay Times. John Graziano, a decorated Marine, was a passenger in Bollea's car, which hit a palm tree. He was hospitalized for two years in Tampa. Now his mother, Debra, cares for him full-time, according to Bay News 9.
