Tina Sheldon, whose 5-year-old son died after her car hit a utility pole last week, was upgraded from critical to serious condition on Monday. Sheldon, 32, of Dade City has been in the intensive care unit at Tampa General Hospital since the crash Friday. Sheldon was driving her 1986 Nissan north on McKethan Road near Ridge Manor when she ran onto the shoulder and crashed, the Florida Highway Patrol said. Her son, Justin, died after the accident, which remains under investigation.
