St. Petersburg woman dies in I-275 rollover

ST. PETERSBURG — A one-vehicle crash Sunday on Interstate 275 left one woman dead, and another woman and a 3-year-old girl seriously injured, authorities said.

Phelicia McKinnon, 50, of St. Petersburg lost control of her 1996 Ford Explorer while trying to change lanes about 2:30 p.m. on northbound I-275 near 28th Street S, the Florida Highway Patrol said. The Explorer veered and flipped several times, eventually landing on its roof.

Kimberly Owen, 38, of St. Petersburg, was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the SUV, the patrol said. Owen was taken to Bayfront Medical Center where she later died.

McKinnon was taken to Bayfront with serious injuries and 3-year-old Kamaria Clay, another passenger, was taken to All Children's Hospital with serious injuries. McKinnon and Clay were wearing seat belts, troopers said.
