A woman is dead and her passenger seriously injured after a crash at the intersection of Landover and Mariner boulevards Friday night, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Catherine Lord, 78, of Spring Hill, was driving a 2006 Ford Taurus west on Landover Boulevard about 7 p.m. as Matthew Beiersi, 36, of Gravenhurst, Ontario, headed north on Mariner Boulevard, FHP said.
