SARASOTA COUNTY - One person is dead and another injured after an early morning crash in Sarasota.

It happened Thursday around 8 a.m. at Bee Ridge Road Ext. and Heritage Oaks Blvd.

89-year-old Barney Radov pulled up to a stop sign on Heritage Oaks Blvd and Bee Ridge Road Ext. 63-year-old Peggy Creadon was driving south Bee Ridge Road approaching the intersection of Heritage Oaks Blvd.

Radov attempted to make a left turn and pulled directly into the path of Creadon, who had the right of way, and the two vehicles collided.

Radov was taken to Blake Medical Center where he died of his injuries. Creadon was taken to Doctors Hospital also in serious condition.

Charges are pending.
