Teen Killed in Motorcycle Crash

Angelica Lee Hall, 18, was a passenger on a motorcycle that crashed Thursday morning. It was the second time she was involved in a crash in less than two months. In both incidents, Shay Daniel Lydon, 20, of Palm Harbor, was the driver.

A Palm Harbor teen was killed Thursday morning when she was thrown from a motorcycle in Clearwater. Barely more than six weeks ago, the teen and the same driver were in a wreck on Curlew Road in Dunedin.

Angelica Lee Hall, 18, died at the scene of Thursday's crash, which happened just before 10 a.m., according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Hall was a passenger on a motorcycle driven by Shay Daniel Lydon, 20, of Palm Harbor, investigators said. 

The Yamaha motorcycle was traveling northbound in the inside lane on Belcher Road and ran a red light at the intersection of Belleair Road. The motorcycle drove into the path of a Toyota which was traveling westbound on Belleair Road.

Hall and Lydon were ejected from the motorcycle. Neither was wearing a helmet, according to officials. Lydon was airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg where he is in critical condition, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The driver of the Toyota, Charles Manning, 62, of Russelville, Ark. was taken to Bayfront Medical Center and is in serious condition. The passenger in the Toyota, Patricia Muth, 70, of Clearwater, also was injured. She was taken to Bayfront Medical Center where she is in serious condition. Manning and Muth were wearing seat belts.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.

Thursday's deadly motorcycle crash happened less than two months after a wreck in which both Hall and Lydon were injured.

Lydon was driving a Geo Prism and pulled into the path of a Dodge Ram van that was headed eastbound on Curlew Road in Dunedin around 8 a.m. March 30.

The crash was so severe, Hall had to be extricated from the car, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. Hall was airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center with life threatening injuries. Lydon was taken to a hospital by ambulance .
