A Palm Harbor teen was killed Thursday morning when she was thrown from a motorcycle in Clearwater. Just over six weeks ago, the teen and the same driver were in a wreck on Curlew Rd. in Dunedin.
Angelica Lee Hall, 18, died at the scene of Thursday's crash, which happened just before 10 a.m. The Florida Highway Patrol says Hall was a passenger on a motorcycle driven by Shay Daniel Lydon, 20, of Palm Harbor.
The Yamaha motorcycle was traveling northbound in the inside lane on Belcher Rd. and ran a red light at the intersection of Belleair Rd. The motorcycle drove into the path of a Toyota which was traveling westbound on Belleair Rd. Hall and Lydon were ejected from the motorcycle. Neither was wearing a helmet. Lydon was airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg where he is in critical condition, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The driver of the Toyota, 62 year-old Charles Manning of Russelville, Arkansas was taken to Bayfront Medical Center and is in serious condition. The passenger in the Toyota, 70 year-old Patricia Muth of Clearwater was also injured. She was taken to Bayfront Medical Center where she is in serious condition. Manning and Muth were wearing seat belts.
Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.
Thursday's deadly motorcycle crash happened less than two months after a wreck in which both Hall and Lydon were injured. Around 8 a.m. on March 30, Lydon was driving a Geo Prism and pulled into the path of a Dodge Ram van that was headed eastbound on Curlew Rd in Dunedin. The crash was so severe, Hall had to be extricated from the car, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. Hall was airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center with life threatening injuries. Lydon was taken to a hospital by ambulance
