One woman dead, her husband and another driver injured in Clearwater accident

CLEARWATER — An 81-year-old New Port Richey woman was killed and her husband and another person were injured in an accident Thursday morning on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard, authorities said.

According to Clearwater police, Reta Bisaccio was a passenger in a car driven by her husband, Philip Bisaccio, when he turned into the path of another vehicle.

The Bisaccios were turning north onto Belcher Road around 9:45 a.m. when they crossed into the path of a vehicle driven by 26-year-old Kesha Wachpler, also of New Port Richey, police said.

The Bisaccios and Wachpler were all taken to local hospitals.

Reta Bisaccio died when she arrived at Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg.

Just before 1 p.m., police announced that Philip Bisaccio's condition had worsened. He was originally hospitalized with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, but was later being treated as a trauma patient, police said.
