Two lanes of traffic on 53rd Ave E. in Bradenton were closed following a fatal crash on Tuesday. Troopers say around 12:15pm an SUV went through the intersection, clipped a car and hit a utility pole, knocking it down. Troopers say for unknown reasons, the 86-year-old woman behind the wheel abruptly steered the vehicle to the right just before the accident. The Bradenton woman died in the crash, as did her 87-year-old male passenger.
