Two Teens Hurt in Dunedin Car Crash
Two 16-year-old girls were taken to the hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
Two Palm Harbor teenagers have been taken to St. Joseph's Hospital with serious injuries following a car crash at the intersection of Curlew Road and Fisher Road in Dunedin.
According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, 56-year-old Robert Wagner was traveling westbound in the curbside lane of Curlew Road approaching Fisher Road with his 1997 Ford Econoline Van.
Anna Savchuk, 16, and her passenger Kayla Brock, 16, were heading southbound on Fisher in a 2006 Hyundai Sonata, crossing Curlew Road when the Hyundai was struck on the driver's side by Wagner's van, the sheriff's office said.
The crash occurred at 6:59 a.m. Wednesday.
Deputies say both Savchuk and Brock were taken from the vehicle and were transported by air to St. Joseph's Hospital for treatment of serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
Wagner was not injured in the crash.
Deputies say Savchuk appears to have violated the van's right-of-way.
Neither alcohol nor drugs appear to be a factor in the crash, the sheriff's office said.
The investigation continues.
