Deputies seek help identifying driver of truck that hit 76-year-old woman

SEMINOLE — Deputies are asking for the public's help in identifying the driver of a truck that hit a 76-year-old woman Wednesday afternoon in Seminole before driving away.

Barbara Gaymore of Dunedin was pulling a blue suitcase as she crossed Starkey Road just north of Park Boulevard about 1:50 p.m. when she was hit by a northbound white pickup, deputies said. She was thrown to the ground, hitting her head and fracturing her legs.

Gaymore's suitcase might have been lodged in the grille or undercarriage of the truck as the driver fled, authorities said. Pieces of the bag were found at the scene.

Gaymore was taken to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of serious but not life threatening injuries, authorities said.

Witnesses to the accident described the truck as a small, white, late-model pickup, possibly of American make, deputies said. It might have had a chrome rear bumper.

Anyone with information regarding the accident is asked to call the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office at (727) 582-6200.

  2. Unlicensed contractor accused of faking death triggers policy change at Pinellas construction licensing board

    Local Government

    The unlicensed contractor accused of faking his death to avoid angry homeowners has triggered an immediate change in policy at the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board.

    Last year Glenn and Judith Holland said they paid a contractor thousands of dollars to renovate their future retirement home in Seminole. But when they tried to move in on Dec. 14, they said the home was in shambles and uninhabitable. They sent a text message to contractor Marc Anthony Perez at 12:36 p.m. looking for answers. Fourteen minutes later, they got back this text: "This is Marc's daughter, dad passed away on the 7th of December in a car accident. Sorry." Turns out Perez was still alive. Now the Hollands are suing him in Pinellas-Pasco circuit court. [LARA CERRI   |   Times]
