Carolyn Frisbie, a long-time member of Palm Coast’s Trinity Presbyterian congregation and among the leaders of the Community Chorus of Palm Coast, was killed the evening of Jan. 29 in a two-vehicle collision on U.S. 1 in St. Johns County.
Frisbie, 73, was stopped in her 1997 Toyota Camry at the intersection of Venetian Boulevard and U.S. 1., just north of St. Augustine. With her was Lillian Warner, 82, of Palm Coast.
Kayla Gordie, 27, of Jacksonville, was driving a 2003 Pontiac, heading north on U.S. 1. According to a Florida Highway Patrol crash report, Frisbie pulled out to cross U.S. 1’s northbound lanes and make a left, to go south. Instead, she violated Gordie’s right of way, triggering a t-bone collision with the Pontiac, with the Camry’s driver’s side taking the brunt of the collision.
The crash took place at 6:25 p.m. It left Warner with serious injuries and was treated at Flagler Hospital in St. Augustine. Frisbie, a resident of Frankford Lane in Palm Coast for almost a dozen years, was taken to Flagler Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Gordie suffered minor injuries and was treated at Flagler Hospital.
