St. Petersburg woman dies in Orlando-area crash

A St. Petersburg woman was killed Sunday in a car crash on U.S. 27 in Clermont, officials said.

Garnet Kohn, 82, was a passenger in a 2007 Nissan that collided with another car at about 4:40 p.m. Sunday. Kohn died at Orlando Regional Medical Center, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Authorities said a Chevrolet driven by Frank Glow, 83, of Clermont, was east on Margaux Drive and made a right turn onto U.S. 27. The Chevrolet collided with the Nissan, which was southbound on the highway.

Glow and his passenger, Margaret Smith, 78, of Clermont, were seriously injured, as was Wendy Schell, 52, of Plant City, who was the driver of the Nissan.

It's unclear if Glow stopped at the stop sign before pulling onto the road, officials said. An investigation is ongoing.
