MARCO ISLAND — Tim Stinchcomb, a resident of Marco Island for more than 30 years, said he was disappointed by the lack of news coverage immediately following an accident that he says nearly killed his wife, Kathryne Stinchcomb, 56, Feb. 28.
The Marco Island Police Department completed the crash report and made it available for the first time Tuesday.
Kathryne was on her way to the video store after work early that Saturday evening, she reported.
She parked across the street from Marco Town Center and was struck near 1089 North Collier Boulevard at about 5:30 p.m., Feb. 28, according the report.
Her husband, Tim, said Kathryne is in severe pain and the extent of her injuries is still being discovered.
Kathryne was struck by a vehicle driven by Carta Paret, 71, of Crescent Street, according to the report.
Paret was blinded by sunlight when she struck Kathryne, who flew up over the car’s hood and landed near the vehicle, police reported in their investigation of the incident.
Kathryne was taken to the hospital, where she stayed for nearly four days before being released to their San Marco Road home, her husband reported.
