Pedestrian struck by car, badly injured while crossing Clearwater street


Pedestrian struck, badly hurt attempting to cross street

A woman walking a bicycle across the street was struck by a car and critically injured Sunday afternoon, authorities said.

Stephanie Bunch, 24, was walking the bicycle across Court Street near Hillcrest Avenue about 1 p.m. when she was hit by a westbound 1996 Toyota Camry driven by Jennifer K. Robinson, 38, according to a Clearwater spokesman. Addresses were not provided for either woman.

Clearwater Fire & Rescue treated Bunch at the scene, and then she was taken by helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center, where she was in critical condition Sunday night.

Westbound traffic on Court Street was diverted for more than three hours. The spokesman did not announce any charges.
