Palm Harbor, FL (11/18/2019) – A pedestrian suffered severe injuries on Monday when a car hit her in a crossing area. The crash happened on Alderman Road just west of U.S. 19 North at the entrance of a UPS store around 12:43 pm.

Troopers say that the driver, Lorraine M. Lemire, 78, left the UPS store and failed to see a pedestrian in her path. EMTs transported Frances Vasques, 68, to Bayfront Health after the collision. 

Lemire did not sustain any injuries. However, she received a citation for failure to yield to a pedestrian.
