65-year-old pedestrian in crosswalk dies after being struck by pickup in Seminole

SEMINOLE — A 65-year-old man died late Wednesday when he was hit by a pickup in a crosswalk, Pinellas sheriff's deputies said.

John Hugo Swenson, whose last known address was in Clearwater, was crossing Bay Pines Boulevard at 100th Way N about 10 p.m. when a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup approached the intersection.

The Dodge, driven by Robert J. Longboat, 30, hit the man in the crosswalk, deputies said.

Deputies said there is a signal at the intersection and that they are investigating who had the right-of-way.

An investigation was still under way Thursday.
