Two people were hospitalized Friday morning after a crash at Fisher and Curlew roads in Dunedin.

DUNEDIN — Two Palm Harbor teenagers were injured in a two-vehicle crash Friday morning. The crash happened around 8 a.m. at the intersection of Fisher and Curlew roads in Dunedin.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office gave the following account:

Shay Lydon, 19, driving a 1992 Geo Prism, pulled out from Fisher onto Curlew and into the path of an oncoming Dodge Ram van that was eastbound on Curlew. There's a stop sign on Fisher Road southbound at the intersection, and no stop signs for Curlew Road east or westbound at that location.

The impact of the crash was on the front passenger side of the Geo Prism, where 18-year-old Angelica Hall was sitting. The Geo sustained heavy damage, and rescuers had to extricate Hall from the vehicle. Her injuries were possibly life-threatening, so she was flown by helicopter to Bayfront Hospital for treatment. She remained in serious condition later Friday.

Lydon was taken by ambulance to Bayfront for treatment for what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.

The van's driver — Colleen Marinello, 42, of Clearwater — was not injured.

No one was cited in the crash Friday, but deputies were still investigating.
