Pedestrian seriously hurt in U.S. 19 wreck in Palm Harbor

A 43-year-old man crossing U.S. 19 on foot in Palm Harbor was struck and seriously injured by a vehicle Monday night, authorities said.

Jeffrey Wayne Rowland was struck by a Chevy Cavalier — hitting his head on the windshield — near the intersection of Colonial Boulevard at 8:30 p.m. He suffered a broken leg and trauma to his head and chest, said Elizabeth Monforti, a spokeswoman for the Palm Harbor Fire Department, which responded to the scene.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Rowland was walking east along the southbound shoulder of U.S. 19. The car, driven by Paraskevas Betoglou, 61, of Holiday was traveling south. Rowland was taken to Bayfront Medical Center by helicopter.

Neither Betoglou nor a passenger were hurt. Rowland faces a pedestrian violation.
