Two injured in Palm Harbor crash on U.S. 19

Troopers responded to a vehicle accident early Wednesday near the intersection of Klosterman Road and U.S. 19 in Palm Harbor, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.

Two vehicles collided on U.S. 19 around 5:45 a.m. when a northbound car lost control and swerved into the southbound lanes just south of Klosterman.

The car slammed into a sport utility vehicle on the opposite side of the road. The SUV overturned onto the shoulder of the southbound lanes and the car landed in the middle of the street.

Both drivers were injured and taken to area hospitals, FHP spokesman Steve Gaskins said. He said the injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

Two lanes of U.S. 19 were closed at the scene of the accident until 7:18 a.m.
