Driver has medical episode, causing crash that kills St. Pete woman

ST. PETERSBURG — A woman died late Tuesday after she was injured in a crash that occurred when a man had a medical emergency while driving, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Justin M. Page, 31, of St. Petersburg, was driving east about 5:16 p.m. on 54th Avenue N west of 42nd Street in a 2008 Mercury Milan, authorities said. Page lost control of the car, driving into the path of oncoming traffic, colliding head-on with a 1999 Saturn Sedan.

The driver of the Sedan, Beverly A. Johnson, 61, of St. Petersburg, was severely injured and taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where she later died, officials said. Page was also taken to Bayfront for treatment of minor injuries. Adam L. Harder, 32, of St. Petersburg, a passenger in Page's car, also had minor injuries, but was not taken to the hospital.

Troopers did not reveal the nature of Page's medical emergency. The crash remained under investigation.
