PALM HARBOR — A 78-year-old Tarpon Springs woman was charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crash that occurred about 12:43 p.m. Nov. 18 on Alderman Road in Palm Harbor.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, Lorraine M. Lemire was driving a 2014 Honda Accord northbound as she exited the driveway of the UPS store, 35246 U.S. 19 N.
