Police identify two pedestrians hurt in Pinellas Park crash

PINELLAS PARK — Police have identified the two pedestrians badly hurt and hospitalized Thursday night after they were hit by a car while crossing U.S. 19.

Robert Lee Maynard, 50, and Susan Carol Leonardis, 47, are homeless and live in a wooded area near the intersection, police said. They were carrying groceries as they crossed U.S. 19 near 78th Avenue, heading west about 9:30 p.m.

Police said they stepped into the path of a northbound silver 2001 Saturn vehicle driven by Theodore Turner, 18, of Clearwater.

Turner stayed at the scene. Police did not think he was impaired or speeding. Charges were not expected.

Northbound U.S. 19 traffic was down to one lane for about three hours while police examined the area.

Police said Maynard and Leonardis sustained multiple bodily injuries, and her condition has worsened.

The crash was still being investigated early Friday.
