Woman seriously injured in St. Pete crash

ST. PETERSBURG — A 36-year-old woman was seriously injured Thursday in a three-vehicle crash.

Crews were called to the intersection of 38th Avenue N and 28th Street N about 4 p.m.

Police say Kelli McIntire was speeding in the eastbound median lane of 38th Avenue when, for an unknown reason, she drifted into the left turn lane and hit the back of 2006 Ford box truck owned by American Appliance.

The truck, which had been waiting to make a left turn on a green light, was then pushed into a Toyota that was in front of it.

McIntire was trapped in her 1999 Dodge pickup, and had to be cut out by firefighters. She was taken to Bayfront Medical Center and listed in serious condition late Thursday night.

The driver of the appliance truck, Justin Baric, 28, and the Toyota, Lisa Spencer, 44, were not injured.

All east, west and southbound traffic lanes near the scene were blocked off for about an hour. St. Petersburg Police are investigating.
