Pedestrian badly injured by SUV in Pinellas Park

PINELLAS PARK — A 21-year-old Pinellas Park woman was badly injured after she was struck by an SUV while crossing a road early Thursday, police said.

Brittany A. Agerenza was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in "extremely serious condition," police said.

The crash happened just before 1:40 a.m. near 78th Avenue and 65th Way N.

Police say Agerenza was walking from the north across 78th Avenue just east of 65th Way when she stepped into the eastbound lane and was hit by a Ford Explorer driven by 21-year-old James M. Helme.

Evidence suggests Agerenza was intoxicated, police said. Helme is not expected to be charged, but Agerenza could be charged.
