Authorities identify man struck twice in Lealman

LEALMAN — Authorities identified the 59-year-old man killed Sunday after being hit by two vehicles while crossing a road as Denver C. Grosse of St. Petersburg.

The incident happened at 62nd Avenue and Lincoln Way about 11 p.m., according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The road was dark, and there were no pedestrian crosswalks.

Grosse was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where he died. Troopers said he was about 240 feet from an intersection that was marked and lighted for pedestrian crossing. He was also wearing dark clothes.

Troopers said 27-year-old Sarah M. McHenry of St. Petersburg was eastbound on 62nd Avenue N when she struck him near Lincoln Way. The crash sent Grosse to the opposite side of the road, where he was struck by a westbound vehicle driven by 26-year-old Ryan Cole Whitmill of St. Petersburg.
