Crash injures two in Clearwater

CLEARWATER — A Largo woman and her passenger were injured Thursday night after colliding with another vehicle at Belcher Road and Gulf to Bay Boulevard.

Margaret Serra, 78, was driving her four-door 2003 Saturn westbound on Gulf to Bay when she tried to make to turn left onto Belcher Road, said Clearwater public safety spokeswoman Elizabeth Watts.

She turned into the path of an eastbound 2006 Toyota van, and the vehicles collided in the intersection, Watts said.

The van's driver, Erika Frotman, 23, of Tampa, was not injured.

Serra and her unidentified passenger were taken to Bayfront Medical Center with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, Watts said.

The investigation continues. Charges or citation could be pending.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor. Please return for updates.

  3. To catch a poacher: Florida wildlife officers set up undercover gator farm sting


    To catch a ring of poachers who targeted Florida's million-dollar alligator farming industry, state wildlife officers created the ultimate undercover operation.

    To catch a ring of poachers who targeted Florida's million-dollar alligator farming industry, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission set up an undercover operation. They created their own alligator farm, complete with plenty of real, live alligators, watched over by real, live undercover wildlife officers. It also had hidden video cameras to record everything that happened. That was two years ago, and on Wednesday wildlife officers announced that they arrested nine people on  44 felony charges alleging they broke wildlife laws governing alligator harvesting, transporting eggs and hatchlings across state lines, dealing in stolen property, falsifying records, racketeering and conspiracy. The wildlife commission released these photos of alligators, eggs and hatchlings taken during the undercover operation. [Courtesy of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission]
