Authorities investigating two serious crashes in Pinellas late Thursday night

Authorities are on scene of two serious crashes in Pinellas County.

One accident, in Pinellas Park, prompted officials to shut down the intersection at Ulmerton Road and 49th street briefly as a patient was taken to the hospital as a trauma alert.

A Bayflite helicopter was called to the other accident, which was at Belcher Road and Gulf to Bay Boulevard in Clearwater.

Details of both crashes were unclear late Thursday night, dispatchers said.

The Pinellas Park accident was called in at about 9:15 p.m. and is being investigated by the Florida Highway Patrol. Clearwater officials are handling the other crash, which was called in at about 9:30 p.m.
