ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

A 58-year-old woman was killed Monday morning while driving the wrong way on southbound I-275 in St. Petersburg.

The Florida Highway Patrol is still trying to sort out all of the details, but troopers say Sandra R. Weems was going the wrong way in a 2004 Pontiac sedan. She collided head-on with a van, driven by David C. Davis, officers said.

The crash happened around 6:30 a.m. near 54th Avenue South, just before the entrance to the Skyway Bridge. Weems was killed in the crash.

Davis suffered minor injuries, but officers said his passenger, Dragan Radak, was listed in serious condition. Both were taken to Bayfront Medical Center.

The crash caused major delays during rush-hour traffic.
