Palm Harbor, FL (March 2, 2020) – On Saturday night, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene of a car accident on Palm Harbor that involved two vehicles.
The accident took place on Nebraska Avenue when an on-duty police officer in a Chevrolet Tahoe was driving westbound on the roadway.
At the same time, a 39-year-old woman driving her Toyota Highlander in the westbound lane and was stopped at a red light on Belcher Road.
The deputy allegedly failed to stop for traffic and ran into the rear-end of the other vehicle. The deputy, the Toyota driver, and her two passengers were treated for injuries.
The crash remains under investigation at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
