Seminole man killed in traffic accident

ST. PETERSBURG — A 29-year-old man died early Saturday morning from injuries caused by a car crash on Interstate 275.

Jared and Michelle Demontmorency of Seminole were driving north on I-275 about 2:30 a.m. Saturday when they took the ramp to State Road 686 and headed west toward 118th Street N, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

While following the curve on the exit ramp, Jared Demontmorency lost control of the vehicle. The 2009 Chevrolet pickup overturned multiple times, colliding with a barrier wall on the shoulder of the overpass.

Neither the Demontmorencys nor a passenger, Gary Arthur Mygdal, 24, of Seminole were wearing seat belts and all three were thrown from the truck.

They were taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where Jared Demontmorency died of his injuries.

Michelle Demontmorency, 24, was in serious condition Saturday, and Mygdal's status was critical condition, the FHP said.
