TAMPA — A 40-year-old man was pronounced dead after he was run over by a car Saturday morning, police said.
James W. Mingo Jr. was lying in the road near a bicycle on N 50th Street just north of Adamo Drive shortly before 6 a.m. when he was run over by a northbound Honda Civic, according to the Tampa Police Department. The driver, whose name was not released, saw the bicycle in the road and tried to brake, but ran over both the bike and Mingo, police said.
Detectives suspect that Mingo, whose last known address is 28th Street in Tampa, was alive at the time and died from injuries caused by the impact, police said. The investigation continued Sunday.
