A two-car crash in front of Madeira Beach Fundamental left two injured this morning as children headed back for the first day of school.
Two were injured in the chain of events, including Monefeldt who was headed southbound on Duhme Road in Seminole, according to a news release.
A car driven by Michelle Tallman, 37, was westbound on American Legion Drive around 7:15 a.m. and was turning with the green light to go southbound on Duhme Road when she reportedly tried to maneuver around school traffic, according to a news release.
Tallman's Honda struck the Mazda driven by Monefeldt in front of Madeira Beach Fundamental, according to deputies.
The crash happened in front of a bicyclist, Hung The Nguyen, 92, who accidentally sideswiped Susan E. Daugherty in an effort to avoid the car crash. The 89-year-old crossing guard was working near the intersection of Duhme Road and American Legion Drive, according to deputies.
Daugherty was treated for minor injuries on scene and Monefeldt was taken to Largo Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries, according to the sheriff's office.
Tallman was cited with careless driving.
