Authorities release name of woman injured in Skyway crash

ST. PETERSBURG — Authorities released the name Friday of a woman who was critically injured in a crash Thursday on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.

Alice Marie Donahue, 67, of Dunedin remained in critical condition early Friday at Bayfront Health St. Petersburg following the crash, which happened near the top of the northbound side of the bridge.

Donahue was headed north about 4 p.m. Thursday in a Chevrolet pickup truck. As she reached the top of the bridge, she veered from the outside lane onto the shoulder, slamming into the back of two pickup trucks that were parked in a construction area, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The other two trucks were unoccupied and no one else was injured.

It was unclear what caused Donahue to drive onto the shoulder. The crash remained under investigation Friday morning.
