An 18-year-old woman remained in fair condition Friday after she was injured in a car accident Thursday night on the way home from graduation ceremonies at Seminole High School. Nichole Yunko was driving home from graduation in a 1987 Yugo, along with her friends Merideth Jones, 17, who also graduated; and Jessica Hartford, 18. All three are from Largo. As they drove east on 86th Avenue N, their car slammed into a 1978 Mercury stopped at a red light in front of them, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The Mercury was driven by Charles Wheeler, 16, and the passengers were Chris Martin, 15, and Peter Grey, 16, of St. Petersburg. Yunko was taken by helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center. Other injuries were minor. Yunko was cited for driving without due care and not using her seat belt.
