Police lights

A woman who authorities said caused a three-car crash Friday due to a medical episode was pronounced dead.

Placida resident Sandra Lee Kemper, 68, was traveling north on Jacaranda Boulevard in her 2002 Lexus, and ran a red light after suffering a medical episode, the Florida Highway Patrol reported. She ran into 20-year-old North Port resident, Yuriy Tabakov’s Honda Accord, who was on the southbound lane of Jacarda Boulevard, turning left on a green left-turn arrow to U.S. 41.

After colliding with Tabakov, Kemper spun out, colliding with the front of 75-year-old Venice resident Laura Robinson’s Prius.

The crash took place at 9 a.m.

Kemper was transported to Venice Regional Hospital after the crash, where she was pronounced dead later in the day. Tabakov and Robinson were uninjured.

The crash remains under investigation, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.
