Police identify woman killed in Pinellas Park hit-and-run

PINELLAS PARK — An Indian Rocks Beach woman just three days shy of her 51st birthday was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver Friday night, police said.

Jeanne Marie Fisher was struck in the 9700 block of 66th Street N about 7:30 p.m., Pinellas Park police said. She was taken to Bayfront Medical Center and died there just after 10:30 p.m., police said.

Fisher was crossing the street and had stopped on the median before being struck in the center northbound lane. Police said she had just left a nearby restaurant and was making her way back to a tattoo shop she'd visited earlier.

Police believe the car is a Ford sport utility vehicle. They say the SUV should be missing its right side mirror and casing and also have damage to its right front, including a broken yellow turn signal lens.

Police are asking anyone who has information to call (727) 541-0758 or contact Sgt. T. Schofield at (727) 647-0175.
