The North Pinellas Firefighters Charities respectfully requests any and all assistance after the devastating accident that occurred during the early morning hours on September 22, 2021. Lieutenant Paramedic Ashley White and her crew were on scene of a motor vehicle collision in the northbound lanes on US Hwy 19 when another vehicle traveling at an extremely high rate of speed hit both parked fire engines that were already on scene. After hitting the fire apparatus the vehicle then collided with Lieutenant White while she was tending to the victims of the first crash. Her crew members quickly turned their attention to her as they rendered aid and declared her a Trauma Alert before being rapidly transported to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg. Lieutenant White is currently in stable, but critical condition thanks to the life saving efforts of all involved! She is to undergo many surgeries, and will have an extremely long road of recovery ahead of her.
Lieutenant White is a true American Hero.
She is the wife of a fellow Clearwater Firefighter, a Mother, and is extremely active in the community in which she serves.
** Medical expenses will be covered. Any donations received will go directly towards her family and all the additional expenses that come with her long road to recovery. **
