St. Pete wreck seriously injures passenger

- A passenger in a convertible was critically injured Sunday morning in a single vehicle wreck.

Police said they were called to 22nd Avenue North and 68th Street North around 2:30 a.m.

Investigators said Kerwin Mayorga, 21, was driving a red 2008 Chrysler Sebring convertible on 22nd Avenue North with the top down. He was turning left on 68th Street North, but police said he was going too fast.

Police said the vehicle went up the guide wire for a utility pole at the intersection before falling back to the ground and coming to rest on all of its wheels.

During the event, the front female passenger was ejected from the car and landed on the ground.

She was transported from the scene to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg with life threatening injuries, but is now in stable condition. Another passenger in the back seat was also taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
