Female Pedestrian Struck on Keene Road in Largo Friday Night

December 6, 2014

Shortly after 6:30 PM on Friday, December 5, 2014, units were dispatched to reports of a vehicle crash involving a pedestrian on Keene Road just south of Rosery Road in Largo.

A Pinellas County Sheriff’s Deputy rolled up on the crash as units from Largo Fire Rescue were still responding to the scene.  Largo Police were requested to expedite as all northbound lanes were blocked and serious injuries to the woman.

The conscious but seriously injured female was in the northbound curb lane when crews from Largo Fire Rescue and Sunstar Paramedics arrived.  An air transport was requested due to the extent of her injuries and Bayflite was dispatched.  The helicopter landed to the north of the crash scene closing both north and southbound traffic on Keene Road.  Clearwater Fire & Rescue assisted on-scene with the landing zone.

No information has been provided regarding this incident which remains under investigation. The male driver of the vehicle was not injured during the impact and he was estimated to have been traveling about 30 mph.

The Florida Department of Transportation has given grant money to local law enforcement agencies in attempt to combat the number of pedestrian crashes.  Florida has twice the national average of pedestrian fatalities with almost 10 pedestrians killed each week and another 120 injured each week.  For more information visit http://www.AlertTodayFlorida.com
