Pinellas Park, FL (4/14/2020) – A man died Tuesday morning after being involved in a collision at a Pinellas Park intersection. The accident happened around 8:00 a.m. at the intersection of Park Boulevard and Belcher Road.
According to the Pinellas Park Police Department, Nathan Marcum was driving his Chrysler 200 south on Belcher Road when he stopped at the intersection for a red light. Another driver, whose name has not been released, was heading west on Park Boulevard in their Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and entered the intersection during a green light.
