Pedestrian critically injured at Pinellas Trail intersection

A 65-year-old woman was critically injured early Tuesday when she was struck by a car at an intersection of the Pinellas Trail.

Police said Connie Clark, 65, was walking south on the Pinellas Trail with Elaine Davis, 67, about 6:45 a.m. Clark and Davis began to cross the intersection of 34th Avenue NE when Caroline Condon, 18, of St. Petersburg struck both women.

Police said Condon was driving west on 34th Avenue NE and was making a right turn. She looked left to look for northbound traffic, police said, but never saw the two women walking to her right. Clark and Davis were in a marked crosswalk and there were several seconds remaining on a pedestrian crossing signal, police said.

Davis was struck by the right front fender of Condon's car, but wasn't injured. Clark struck her head on the pavement and sustained a critical head injury, police said. She was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg with life-threatening injuries.
