Driver Kills Two People After Running Red Light Near Oleander Ave and Tumblin Kling Rd
A 32-year-old driver ran a red-light near Fort Pierce and killed two people, according to police and court records.
The crash happened at the intersection of Oleander Ave and Tumblin Kling Rd. Two women were killed in the incident.
The man was driving north on Oleander Avenue in a white 2020 Nissan Frontier SUV when he ran a red light and struck the passenger side of a Ford heading east on Tumblin Kling Road, Fort Pierce police said.
The Ford driver, 18, and her friend who was a passenger in the vehicle died at the scene. Both are from the Linton Blvd area, police said.
The driver who was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition remained hospitalized.
Police said they continue to investigate but said alcohol or drugs do not appear to be a factor.
