Starkey Road and 102nd Avenue North Two-Vehicle Crash Critically Injures 2 Children
Pinellas County, FL (September 24, 2017) – A couple of small children were critically injured in a two-vehicle collision that occurred Sunday afternoon.
According to the investigators of the Florida Highway Patrol, the collision took place around 3:52 p.m. on September 23, near CR-1 (Starkey Road) and 102nd Avenue North intersection.
According to the report, 32-year-old Karen Thaxton lost control of her Chevy Equinox when it hydroplaned through standing water on the road.

The two children were passengers on board the Equinox. They were both transported to All Children’s Hospital for treatment.
