Woman and 4-year-old girl injured in crash with dump truck

ST. PETERSBURG — A St. Petersburg woman and her 4-year-old daughter were severely injured early Thursday when their car collided with a city dump truck, police said.

Katheryn McCreedy, 42, and her daughter, Eavan McCreedy, were both hospitalized in critical condition. Police said McCreedy was in stable condition at All Children's Hospital.

Both were properly restrained inside the 1998 Volvo, police said. McCreedy was driving while Scott McCreedy, 46, was in front passenger seat and Eavan was in the rear seat.

The crash happened at 22nd Street and 22nd Avenue S at 7:45 a.m.

Police say McCreedy was eastbound on 22nd Avenue S in the outside lane. A city-owned dump truck, driven by Edgar D. Camp, 56, was southbound on 22nd Street S.

Camp said he entered the intersection before his light changed to yellow. Scott McCreedy said their light was green.

The Volvo drove into the path of the dump truck and was hit on the driver's side, causing it to spin. Camp was uninjured.
