Pedestrian hit on Gulf Boulevard

MADEIRA BEACH — A woman crossing Gulf Boulevard with a group of friends was hit by a car and injured Saturday night, authorities said.

Rebecca Potter, 46, of Madeira Beach was taken to Bayfront Medical Center. Deputies said her injuries are not life threatening.

The accident happened about 9:45 p.m. just north of John's Pass Village. Potter was hit by a 2006 Ford Explorer driven by Robert Demery, 81, of Clearwater, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

Demery was driving north on Gulf Boulevard in the curb lane when he struck Potter, who was not in a crosswalk, deputies said. Potter, who lives nearby on Gulf Lane, suffered facial fractures.

No charges have been filed at this point.
