Bouma, 19, had been a passenger in a truck that crashed along 103rd Street, just east of Clearwater, shortly before 6:30 p.m. on Saturday. Deputies told reporters they found a silver Ford pickup on its side against a tree.
The driver, 19-year-old Austin J. Wesson of Clearwater, was pronounced dead at the scene. His passenger, 19-year-old Rebekah Bouma was taken by EMS to the hospital in critical condition where she later died.
