PINELLAS PARK — Two people are in critical condition after a drunken driver ran a red light and hit the car they were in early Sunday, according to police.

Just before 1 a.m., 36-year-old Brice Albert Macleod, drove a blue 2016 Toyota Corolla through a red light on Park Boulevard at 43rd Street N and struck a silver 2003 Toyota Camry driven by 34-year-old Caroline Sue Sine, Pinellas Park police said. Sine, of St. Petersburg, and her passenger, 36-year-old Sean R. Hankins, of Tampa, were taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg and were listed in critical condition as of Sunday morning.

Police conducted a DUI investigation on Macleod, who showed signs of impairment, according to police. He refused to perform field sobriety tests, but officers arrested him on two counts of DUI with serious bodily injury based on their observations, said police spokesman Sgt. Michael Lynch. Investigators drew a blood sample that will show his blood alcohol content level when the results come back, which could take up to a month, Lynch said.

Macleod, of St. Petersburg, was booked into the Pinellas County Jail, where he remained Sunday morning in lieu of $20,000 bail, according to jail records.
