ST. PETERSBURG — A 73-year-old woman died in a traffic crash Monday morning after she turned into an oncoming vehicle, St. Petersburg police reported.
The crash happened about 10:07 a.m. at 18th Avenue and 66th Street N.
Police said Mary Jo Boyne of Parrish was driving a 2004 Volvo north on 66th Street N as Thomas Morales Hull, 32, of St. Petersburg was driving south in the middle lane of 66th Street N and had a steady green light.
After stopping at the intersection, Boyne turned onto 18th Avenue N into the path of Hull's 1985 Chevy. The front end of Hull's vehicle struck the passenger side of Boyne's vehicle. The collision pushed her Volvo to the southwest corner of the intersection, where it hit a pole.
At 10:17 a.m., fire rescue personnel pronounced Boyne dead at the scene.
Hull was transported to Bayfront Medical Center with minor injuries.
No charges have been filed, nor is alcohol suspected to have played a role in the crash.
