FHP IDs victims in fatal Tuesday crash


INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Florida Highway Patrol officials identified an 89-year-old woman who died and two others who were seriously hurt in a two-vehicle crash that occurred earlier this week.

The deadly incident happened at 8:12 p.m. Tuesday when a 2015 Buick ran a red light and collided with a 2011 Toyota Corolla, troopers said. The crash closed northbound 27th Avenue Southwest and 21st Street Southwest in the immediate area for a couple hours, authorities said.

The three victims, all of Fort Pierce, were taken to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute in Fort Pierce. The 89-year-old woman who died at the hospital was identified as Anne Bollon, troopers said.

Bollon’s husband, Frank Bollon, 77, and a second woman, Judith Digiacomo, 74, were listed in serious condition. Updates on their injuries were not immediately available.

Troopers said Digiacomo was traveling east in a Buick on 21st Street Southwest late Tuesday approaching the intersection. Digiacomo drove through the red light and collided with a northbound Toyota Corolla traveling on 27th Avenue Southwest, authorities said.

The crash jolted the Buick into a northeastern direction, causing the vehicle to strike a pedestrian traffic signal, troopers said. The Corolla, where Frank and Anne Bollon were the driver and passenger, spun clockwise and stopped in a southeastern direction in the intersection.

Troopers continue to investigate the crash.
