RIVERVIEW — A 45-year-old St. Petersburg man was killed Thursday when he drove the wrong way on U.S. 301 and crashed head-on with a pickup truck, authorities said.
Anthony Leonard Shaw was driving a 2001 Acura sedan south in the northbound lanes at about 10 p.m. when he collided with a 2017 Chevrolet pickup, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Shaw died from his injuries at the scene. The pickup driver, 62-year-old Deborah T. Fordom of Riverview, was taken to Tampa General Hospital to be treated for serious injuries.
Troopers were still investigating Friday to determine if alcohol, a medical emergency or a combination of both contributed to Shaw driving the wrong way.
