ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) - One man has died after a fiery crash involving three drivers early Saturday morning, but the actions of a good Samaritan may have kept a second person from dying, police said.
The accident happened around 3:30 a.m. near the the intersection of 22nd Avenue South and 34th Street.
St. Petersburg police said the driver of an Audi A4, identified as 27-year-old Kelvin Santana, was likely speeding when he rear-ended a Ford SUV stopped for a red light in the southbound lane of 34th Street.
The Ford was knocked into a Honda, also stopped at the light. The Ford caught fire, but the driver was pulled out of the vehicle by a passerby.
All parties involved were transported to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg. The Santana was pronounced dead at the hospital.
St. Petersburg police said Santana's driver's license shows a Miami address, but relatives said he was living in Clearwater.
The drivers of the Ford and the Honda were treated for non-life threatening injuries.
