BRADENTON, FL (WWSB) - Two lanes of traffic on 53rd Ave E. in Bradenton were closed following a fatal crash on Tuesday.

Troopers say around 12:15pm an SUV went through the intersection, clipped a car and hit a utility pole, knocking it down. Dashcam video of the accident shows just how fast the car was going.

Troopers say for unknown reasons, 86-year-old Charlotte Lengener abruptly steered the vehicle to the right just before the accident. The Bradenton woman died in the crash, as did her passenger, 87-year-old Peter Lengener.

The 69-year-old Myakka City woman whose car was clipped by the vehicle before it hit the utility pole was uninjured.
