Woman gets hit by a car but still votes


She gets hit by a car, but she still votes

Not even being hit by a car was going to stop Robyn Nuzzolo from voting Tuesday. Nuzzolo, 51, rode her bike to vote at the Salvation Army on Belcher Road about 7:30 a.m., but seeing the line was a bit long, she headed to a rental car location on State Road 580. Her daughter, Colleen Beattie, 24, was due to arrive at Tampa International Airport at 10 a.m. from Boston and Nuzzolo needed a car to pick her up. Nuzzolo, who lives in the Villas of Lake Arbor, was crossing from sidewalk to sidewalk on World Parkway Boulevard when a car hit her and knocked her off her bike. "I went down and I was dazed," she said. She declined an ambulance because she didn't have the money to pay the bill and called a friend, who took her to Meese Countryside Hospital, where her broken left ankle was treated. The friend picked up the daughter, who later came to the hospital and took Nuzzolo to vote at 1:30 p.m. in a borrowed car. "I was determined to vote," Nuzzolo said.
