Pedestrian badly hurt in St. Pete Beach

ST. PETE BEACH — A man was in critical condition Tuesday after he was hit by a car while crossing Blind Pass Road Monday night, police said.

James Roberts, 48, of St. Pete Beach, was walking in a crosswalk across Blind Pass Road near 77th Avenue at 6:49 p.m. when he was hit by a 2008 PT Cruiser heading north on Blind Pass, said Officer Robert Micklitsch, St. Pete Beach's lead traffic homicide investigator.

He said the driver, Norma Aubry, 58, of Largo, did not see Roberts and hit him when he reached the far east side of the street.

There is no traffic light at the intersection, he said, but pedestrians can press a button to signal a pedestrian light. Micklitsch wasn't sure if the button was pressed when Roberts was crossing the road.

Roberts remained at Bayfront Medical Center on Tuesday.

Charges are pending, Micklitsch said. The crash remains under investigation.
