Police investigating fatal single vehicle crash on Central Avenue in St. Petersburg

Officers from the St. Petersburg Police Department are investigating a fatal crash that occurred at 12:40 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Investigators say a 70 year-old male driver from St. Petersburg was operating a burgundy Chrysler Town and Country minivan and involved in the deadly, single vehicle traffic crash in the 6100 block of Central Avenue.

The driver of the Chrysler was traveling eastbound on Central Avenue when it left the road for an unknown reason, and struck a tree.

The driver was transported to a local hospital, where he later died of his injuries. Police reported that the driver did not appear to be wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The driver’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

The investigation remains under way.
