Investigators say Christopher Holly, 28, was driving northbound on U.S 19 and was attempting to make a u-turn at Republic Drive around 3:03 a.m. when his 2005 Nissan Xterra was hit by a 1999 Nissan Altima traveling southbound that ran a red light. The impact of the crash caused the Xterra to roll over.
Holly died at the scene.
Investigators say that Adrian David Rodriguez, 33, of Clearwater, was driving the Altima. He was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa.
