DUNEDIN — A woman was killed Sunday when the stopped car she was driving rolled into an intersection and into the path of another vehicle, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.

At around 11:30 a.m., 88-year-old Sylvia Gurzynski was driving west on Spanish Vistas Drive in a 2005 Nissan Altima and stopped at Belcher Road. Her car rolled into the curbside lane of Belcher Road and was struck by a Ford Explorer driven by Arthur Ames, 18, according the the Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s deputies pronounced Gurzynski dead at the scene. Ames and the passengers in his vehicle were uninjured, deputies said.

Speed and impairment do not appear to factors in the crash, deputies said.
