Units from Seminole Fire Rescue were dispatched to reports of a vehicle crash in the vicinity of Seminole Boulevard and Walsingham Road in unincorporated Largo.  The crash occurred at approximately 5:10 pm this evening.   Seminole’s Engine 32 quickly arrived on-scene of the T-bone type collision with moderate damage.   One occupant of the vehicle was entrapped which required the rescue personnel to utilize specialized extrication equipment.  Additional units from Station 29 including the District Chief responded to assist with the extrication operation.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) assisted at the scene until a trooper from the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) arrived.  FHP will be conducting an investigation into the cause of the crash.
