One dead, three injured in St. Petersburg accident

A 25-year-old St. Petersburg woman was killed and three others were injured after a three-vehicle accident Thursday morning.

St. Petersburg police said the crash occurred when a white Honda Civic traveling east on 38th Avenue N, driven by Tuong Nguyen, 63, of St. Petersburg, turned left onto 34th Street N.

While turning, Nguyen clipped the back of a Ford Escape driven by Vayneveu Kene Bruessard, who was traveling west on 38th Avenue N, police said.

The Escape spun counter-clockwise and crashed across the median and into oncoming traffic. It flipped over its passenger side and Bruessard, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was partially thrown from the car.

The Escape then spun into a Ford F150 truck. The driver, George Lawler, 68 of St. Petersburg, was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg with minor injuries. The truck's passenger, Joshua Blalock, 30, also of St. Petersburg, was uninjured.

Bruessard suffered a head injury and died at the scene. Nguyen was treated on scene for minor injuries.

The crash is under investigation.
