Teenager in Hospital with Life-Threatening Injuries After Car Crash in Port St. Lucie

A young suburban Lake Worth woman is in a local hospital fighting life-threatening injuries after a car wreck in Port St. Lucie early yesterday morning. Cathryn M. Stalnaker, nineteen, was driving in a 2005 red Saturn around 6:30 a.m. Monday morning, heading north on Southeast Seafury Lane. Stalnaker attempted to make a left in order to head west on Southeast Port St. Lucie Boulevard when she was T-boned by another vehicle.

James Lambert, sixty-two, was the driver of the 2007 blue Chevrolet Tahoe that struck Stalnaker’s vehicle. St. Lucie County Fire Rescue arrived on scene shortly after the accident. Fire Rescue had to cut Stalnaker out of her badly mangled vehicle. Stalnaker was then flown to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. The accident caused the closure of two of the three eastbound lanes of Southeast Port St. Lucie Boulevard just east of Southeast Westmoreland Boulevard.
