A man from Seminole is killed after a single-vehicle crash that happened in the afternoon of Friday, March 30 on Park Boulevard.
Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office stated that the crash occurred around 4:17 PM just west of Ridge Road and on Park Boulevard in Seminole, FL.
They have identified 76-year-old James Moriarty Jr. who was heading east on Park Boulevard in his 2016 Nissan Sentra when he, for unknown reasons, drove over the median barrier.
He then traveled onto oncoming traffic on the westbound lanes and onto the curb and sidewalk along the right lanes.
This was followed by him driving through a yard of one home and hitting a mailbox. Then traveling through another yard and struck two fences and eventually after hitting the third fence, Moriarty crashed into a large tree causing the back of his car to spin.
This then led to him hitting a Ford D-150 pickup truck in one driveway.
Moriarty was rushed to Largo Medical Center Main Campus where he was pronounced dead from his injuries.
Police officials say that speed was definitely a factor in this crash.
