Fort Pierce residents killed in Friday afternoon crash

Police have identified the two people killed in a crash Friday afternoon on U.S. 1 near the north city limits as both being Fort Pierce residents.

Fort Pierce Police Sgt. Dennis McWilliams identified the victims as Sophie Rallis, 74, and Ernest DeGregorio, 57, both of the 4200 block of Edwards Road.

Rallis was driving north on U.S. 1 in a Chevrolet Impala in which DeGregorio was a passenger. The vehicle was turning left into the Taylor Creek Commons shopping center near the intersection of State Road A1A when it collided with a southbound Ford pickup driven by Matthew Wilhelm, 57, of Port St. Lucie. Wilhelm was uninjured, McWilliams said.

The crash remained under investigation Saturday afternoon.
