Two men seriously hurt in Palm Harbor crash

PALM HARBOR — Two people were seriously injured in a crash Thursday at County Road 611 and Tarpon Lake Boulevard, officials said.

Curt L. Ekberg, 51, of Palm Harbor, was listed in critical condition at Bayfront Medical Center. Fabian Calvo, 32, of Clearwater, was in serious condition at Mease Countryside, Florida Highway Patrol troopers reported.

Troopers said Ekberg was northbound on CR 611 in a 2008 Hyundai when he made a left turn onto Tarpon Lake Boulevard. Ekberg collided with Calvo, who was driving a 2009 Toyota southbound on CR 611.

Calvo is campaigning to represent state House District 45, which covers northwest Pinellas County and part of south Pasco County.

The crash, which occurred at about 4:40 p.m. Thursday, is under investigation.
