PINELLAS PARK — A driver was hospitalized Wednesday evening after crashing into three cars while speeding south on U.S. 19, Pinellas Park police said.
The series of crashes began at 150th Avenue N and U.S. 19 when a man in a black Chevrolet 4-door drove between two lanes, swiping off the side mirrors of two vehicles, police said.
The Chevy then barreled down U.S. 19 at speeds of about 100 mph. At about 6:30 p.m., the driver took the off ramp leading toward 110th Avenue N and slammed into a Nissan SUV, which overturned. Both drivers were hospitalized. Their conditions and names were not available Wednesday night.
An investigation was under way.
