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.
