Driver, biker, walker die in weekend crashes

Three people were killed in weekend crashes, including a motorcyclist and a pedestrian.

A St. Petersburg man was killed in a single-car wreck about 1:25 a.m. Monday, police said.

Donald Walters Mohyla, 38, of 1473 45th Ave. NE, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said Mohyla was driving a 2004 Kia east on 40th Avenue when his car drifted onto the north curb and hit a palm tree.

Mohyla's airbag deployed, but he was not wearing a seat belt, said police spokesman George Kajtsa.

Sunday night, an unidentified pedestrian was killed as she crossed Fourth Street N at 17th Avenue N about 10:54 p.m.

Nikola Uzelac, 22, was headed south on Fourth Avenue when his 1988 Chevy Camaro struck the pedestrian, knocking her to the ground. No charges were announced against Uzelac.

The incident remained under investigation.

Saturday morning, a motorcyclist was killed after he ran a red light and collided with a taxicab, police said.

Mark E. Simpson, 20, of Pinellas Park ran the red light as he headed south on Fourth Street N. about 10:30 a.m., police said. He was pronounced dead two hours later.

The cab driver was not hurt, and the incident remained under investigation.
