Pedestrian struck by deputy's vehicle

TAMPA — A Hillsborough sheriff's deputy driving on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard struck an intoxicated pedestrian early Wednesday morning, authorities said.

Deputy Daniel Joyce, 43, hit Shawn Michael Thompson-Ferrero, 22, of Tampa, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said. Thompson-Ferrero was transported to Tampa General Hospital with cuts and a possible fracture, the sheriff's office said. He had allegedly tried to cross the street illegally near Orient Road at 3:52 a.m.

Joyce, who had just left the Orient Road Jail, attempted to swerve out of the way but hit Thompson-Ferrero, the sheriff's office said.

The deputy was not injured.

No further information was immediately available.
