LEALMAN, Fla. — A wrong-way driver crashed head-on into another car early Monday morning, killing a woman's unborn child.

The crash happened just after 5:30 a.m. on 54th Avenue N. just east of 43rd Street N., according to a Florida Highway Patrol news release.

Troopers say a 46-year-old St. Petersburg man was heading east in the westbound lane when he crashed into the other car. The impact caused both to spin out before coming to a rest on 54th Avenue N.

A St. Petersburg woman and her male passenger were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Her unborn child, however, died from injuries in the crash, the news release states.

The 46-year-old suffered minor injuries.
