All lanes of McMullen Booth Road have reopened after a crash Thursday morning injured four people, according to the Clearwater Police Department.

The 29-year-old man driving the Chevrolet was flown to St. Joseph’s Hospital with life-threatening injuries. The 34-year-old woman driving the SUV, along with two children, ages 11 and 12, were also taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital for injuries that police believe to be minor.
