Pasco deputy directing traffic hit and injured by SUV

NEW PORT RICHEY — The driver of a sport utility vehicle didn't see a Pasco County sheriff's deputy directing traffic at a crash scene Tuesday afternoon and struck and injured him, authorities said.

Deputy Raymond Meddaugh, 44, of New Port Richey was working the crash scene at State Road 54 at Wiggins Drive, near U.S. 19.

Fern Botdorf, 93, of Mansfield, Ohio, failed to stop for him and ran into him, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Meddaugh was transported to the Medical Center of Trinity with minor injuries to his left leg, and was later released.

Botdorf was cited with failing to use due care and driving around a police detour, the patrol said.
