Largo woman accused of striking man with car

LARGO — A 25-year-old Largo woman struck a 32-year-old man with her car Wednesday and fled the scene, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said.

Kimberly Latrese Hardaway faces charges of aggravated battery with a motor vehicle and resisting arrest after she hit and injured Tarveres Chance, deputies said.

Deputies responded to the incident at 1936 Coral Way just after 8:50 p.m. Here is what they say happened:

Hardaway was driving along Coral Way when she saw a man on the side of the road near 138th Avenue N with whom she had an ongoing dispute. She approached the unidentified man and began yelling from her vehicle. About 25 to 30 people surrounded her car.

The man punched Hardaway in the face. At the same time, another person shot pepper spray into the vehicle through the driver's side window.

Hardaway hit the gas and struck Chance, who was not the man she was arguing with. She continued along Coral Way about a block before switching places with someone else in the car. That person later stopped at a nearby gas station to clean up the pepper spray.

The vehicle was stopped at Tall Pines Drive and Ulmerton Road. Deputies said Hardaway was uncooperative, partly concealing her hands and pulling away from them.

On Thursday afternoon, Hardaway, of 3040 Oaklawn Ave., was being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $20,150 bail. She does not have any previous arrests in Florida, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Chance was treated for minor injuries and released from Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

The investigation continues.
