LARGO — A pregnant woman and her unborn child died Friday from injuries suffered in a three-car wreck that left eastbound Ulmerton Road shut down for hours, according to Largo police.

Kristin Marie Farrell, 23, of Clearwater was flown to Bayfront Medical Center, police said, but was pronounced dead about 5 p.m. She was eight months pregnant, police said.

According to Largo police, she was riding with her husband Kameron Farrell, 24, in a 2005 Toyota Camry on Ulmerton Road about 3 p.m.

Kameron Farrell tried to make a U-turn from westbound Ulmerton into the opposite lanes, police said, when it was struck by two eastbound vehicles.

A Dodge Caravan minivan grazed the Camry, police said, then it was T-boned by an oncoming Ford Explorer, which plowed into the passenger side of the car where Kristin Farrell was riding.

Firefighters had to cut the roof off the Camry to free and treat her.

Eastbound Ulmerton Road was closed for more than four hours while crews cleaned up the scene. The road was finally reopened about 7:30 p.m.

Two people who were riding in the Explorer were taken to a local hospital. There was no information on what injuries the victim's husband may have suffered in the wreck.

Police did not release any other details about the crash or identify the other occupants. The investigation is continuing.
