Driver with nude passenger cited for running red light

SEMINOLE — A driver distracted by a naked woman in her back seat ran a red light and caused a five-car wreck.

No one was seriously injured in the July 21 pileup, although at least one person was taken to Bayfront Medical Center.

Deputies describe the situation this way:

A 2003 Acura driven by Teah L. Limitone, 22, was travling north in the middle lane of Seminole Boulevard about 8 p.m. She ran the light at Seminole and Park Boulevard and hit a 2000 Saturn that was trying to turn left from Park onto Seminole Boulevard. The Saturn spun 180 degrees.

The Acura, still headed north, was pushed into the southbound lanes on Seminole. The Acura slid between two cars that were in the southbound turn lanes on Seminole and then hit a fourth vehicle before stopping.

"There was a naked female in the back seat," Pinellas County sheriff's spokesman Jim Bordner said. "She was changing clothes in the back seat."

Bordner said Limitone told the deputy she heard a moan or a groan and turned to see if the passenger, Ayla Gabriel, was all right. That's when she ran the light.

Limitone was cited for running a red light. She could not be reached for comment Friday, but when called, a woman who identified herself as Mrs. Limitone declined to comment. Gabriel could not be reached Friday.
