Pedestrian's condition upgraded after being hit by car in Dunedin

DUNEDIN — A 62-year-old pedestrian was hospitalized Tuesday afternoon after he was hit by a car on Main Street, authorities said.

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, Terrence L. Fitzgerald, of 1834 Pinehurst Road in Dunedin, was hit by a 2008 Nissan Altima driven by 22-year-old Ariele C. Bever as he tried to cross Main at the intersection of Keene Road about 2:20 p.m.

Pinellas deputies said Bever was northbound on Keene when she made a right turn onto Main, striking Fitzgerald, who had just stepped off of the curb.

Fitzgerald hit his head on the car's windshield and was taken by helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. He was originally transported as a trauma alert patient, but his condition was upgraded Tuesday afternoon and his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, the Sheriff's Office said.

Traffic was halted on Main for a short period of time so the Bayflite helicopter could land.

Bever and her passenger, 27-year-old Aaron M. Bever, of Dunedin, were not injured.

No charges had been filed Tuesday evening and deputies were still interviewing witnesses as part of an ongoing investigation.
