Deputies investigating fatal crash in Madeira Beach

MADEIRA BEACH — Authorities are investigating a crash that left one person dead Wednesday evening.

The accident, which involved two vehicles, was reported at about 7:15 p.m. at 147th Avenue and Gulf Boulevard, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

No one involved in the crash was identified by deputies late Wednesday night.

According to deputies, a Saturn SUV was southbound on Gulf Boulevard when it was struck by a convertible Lotus kit car that was turning onto the road off of 147th Avenue.

First responders performed CPR on the driver of the convertible, who was later pronounced dead at Palms of Pasadena Hospital.

The driver and two passengers in the SUV, who are visiting the area from Canada, were taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg for non life-threatening injuries, sheriff's officials said.

Authorities closed Gulf Boulevard from 143rd Avenue to 150th Avenue as the sheriff's major accident investigation team investigated.
