PINELLAS PARK — One of two music teachers hit by a suspected drunken driver early Sunday on Park Boulevard has died, police said late Monday.
Caroline Sue Sine, 34, was the driver of a 2003 Toyota Camry struck shortly before 1 a.m. by a 2016 Toyota Carolla driven by Brice Macleod, 36, according to Pinellas Park police. Sine was pronounced dead at Bayfront Health St. Petersburg.
The crash also left Sine's passenger, Sean Hankins, 36, in critical condition.
Police said Macleod ran a red light in the 4000 block of Park Boulevard. Officers at the scene suspected Macleod was impaired. Police will now seek charges of DUI manslaughter and DUI causing serious bodily injury against him.
Sine was a music teacher who had worked at Sexton, Blanton, Bay Point, Bay Vista and Pinellas Central elementary schools, district spokeswoman Lisa Wolf said.
Hankins, also a music teacher, works at Miles and Shaw elementary schools in Hillsborough County, according to district spokeswoman Tanya Arja.
Their families could not be reached for comment Monday.
Macleod was initially held in the Pinellas County Jail on $20,000 bail. In his first court appearance Monday, Macleod entered a not guilty plea and Judge Paul Levine raised his bail to $50,000. If Macleod were to post bail, he would have to wear a location-monitoring device.
