St. Petersburg woman killed in crash involving garbage truck

ST. PETERSBURG — A St. Petersburg woman was killed early Wednesday morning after her car was struck by a garbage truck on Roosevelt Boulevard.

Lisa F. Olson, 54, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which occurred at 4:44 a.m. at the intersection with 28th Street North, Florida Highway Patrol troopers reported.

Troopers said Olson was driving a 1996 Lincoln Town Car west on Roosevelt when she turned left onto 28th Street in front of a 2001 Mack truck. The eastbound truck hit the right side of the Town Car.

The truck is owned by ACC Recycling Corp. of St. Petersburg, and was driven by William R. Jablonowski, 53, also of St. Petersburg, troopers said.

Jablonowski was not injured. Both he and Olson were wearing seatbelts. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, troopers said.

No charges had been filed as of Wednesday evening. An investigation was in progress.
