OLDSMAR, FL. – On March 26, 2022, at approximately 7:19 p.m., deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) responded to W. St. Petersburg Drive, west of the intersection of Bayview Boulevard, to investigate a vehicle versus pedestrian crash.
According to investigators, a 40-year-old Spring Hill woman and her 10-year-old and 6-year-old daughters were standing on the north side of W. St. Petersburg Drive, waiting to cross southbound.
A 2010 Nissan Altima, driven by a 40-year-old Tampa man, was traveling westbound on W. St. Petersburg Drive, when the woman and her daughters entered the roadway and were struck by his vehicle.
Investigators say there are no traffic control devices at the intersection of W. St. Petersburg Drive and Bayview Boulevard and the vehicle had the right-of-way. The pedestrians were not in a designated crosswalk at the time of the crash.
All three female victims were transported to the hospital. The woman and her 10-year-old daughter were treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The woman’s 6-year-old daughter was pronounced deceased at the hospital.
