South Pasadena woman, 83, dies in crash

ST. PETERSBURG — An 83-year-old woman was killed in a Monday night crash after apparently failing to obey a stop sign, police said.

Doris Kirk of South Pasadena was driving a 2002 Saturn west on First Avenue S just after 5 p.m.

She ran a stop sign at Park Street S and collided with a 2001 Dodge SUV driven by David Heatwole, 51. He was northbound on Park Street S.

The front end of Heatwole's SUV struck the driver's side of Kirk's car.

She was initially taken to Bayfront Medical Center with serious injuries.

Heatwole was treated and released from St. Petersburg General Hospital.

St. Petersburg police Lt. Bill Korinek said no charges are expected because Kirk appears to have been at fault.
