Man killed after car explodes on bridge

SEMINOLE _ One driver was killed and another critically injured when a car exploded after an accident on the Seminole Bridge early Friday, a sheriff's spokesman said. The man who died had not been identified late Friday, Sgt. Greg Tita said. The other driver, 34-year-old Carolyn Miller of 6834 Fourth Ave. N in St. Petersburg, was in critical condition at Bayfront Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said. Miller was injured when her 1985 Saab struck a 1972 Datsun that had slowed or stopped in the eastbound lane of the Seminole Bridge near Bay Pines Boulevard, Tita said.Water restored to

family after 2 weeks

ST. PETERSBURG _ Water service was restored Friday night to a family of five that went without water for two weeks because the landlord failed to pay a city utility deposit. Pinellas County Judge Horace Andrews signed an order Friday that forced landlord Bobbie Jo Jordan to get water service restored to Andrea James and four children. The apartment at 700 Seventh St. N had water service when James and four of her eight children moved in Oct. 2. But the city turned the service off six days later at the instruction of the building's former owner. With the exception of several days, the service stayed off until Friday because Jordan, who bought the building in August, had not paid the $212.50 deposit for service, city officials said.
