TARPON SPRINGS — The man police say was struck and nearly killed by his girlfriend's car this weekend remained in critical condition Sunday.

Sidney Day, 55, of Tarpon Springs, was transported by helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center with life-threatening head injuries after the incident on Saturday.

Day's girlfriend, Kathy Ternes Wolanin, 58, was arrested and charged with second-degree attempted murder after fleeing the scene in her 1998 Mercury Sable. She remains in the Pinellas County jail and is being held without bail.

According to police, Wolanin bumped Day with her car as he was walking along Pinellas Avenue N in Tarpon Springs. When Day responded by hitting the hood with his hand, Wolanin accelerated and knocked him to the road.
