2 Palm Harbor teenagers injured in Dunedin crash


Crash injures two teens from palm harbor

Two Palm Harbor teenagers were injured in a two-vehicle crash about 8 a.m. Friday at the intersection of Fisher and Curlew roads in Dunedin. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office gave the following account: Shay Lydon, 19, driving a 1992 Geo Prism, pulled out from Fisher onto Curlew and into the path of an oncoming Dodge Ram van that was eastbound on Curlew. There's a stop sign on Fisher Road southbound at the intersection, and there are no stop signs for Curlew Road east or westbound at that location. The impact of the crash injured 18-year-old Angelica Hall, who was sitting on the front passenger side of the Geo Prism. The Geo sustained heavy damage, and rescuers had to extricate Hall from the vehicle. Her injuries were possibly life-threatening, so she was flown by helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment. She remained in serious condition later Friday. Lydon was taken by ambulance to Bayfront for treatment of what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries. The van's driver — Colleen Marinello, 42, of Clearwater — was not injured. No one was cited in the crash Friday, but deputies were still investigating.

Tarpon springs

Suspect arrested in robbery attempt

Acting on an anonymous tip, police made an arrest Thursday in the attempted theft of a woman's purse that occurred at the Tarpon Plaza shopping center on Monday night. Daniel Tighe, 38, of Tarpon Springs is charged with attempted strong armed robbery and child abuse. The abuse charge was added because the purse-snatching occurred next to the woman's 5-year-old daughter. About 6:30 p.m. Monday in front of Katz Restaurant & Playground, the woman and her daughter were walking in the breezeway in front of the restaurant when a man grabbed the woman's purse. The woman fell to the ground and struggled with him. She sustained minor injuries but was able to hold on to her purse. Her daughter ran to Dollar General for help. Authorities were concerned because a lot of families and young children dine at the restaurant. An anonymous source who claimed to have recognized the suspect in a video in media reports called Tarpon Springs police and gave them Tighe's name. After they found Tighe at his home, officers said he had shaved his head since Monday.
