Clearwater police identify man killed in traffic accident

CLEARWATER — Police have identified the pedestrian killed by a vehicle last week.

He is Jose Manuel Martinez Castellanos, 43, of Largo.

Clearwater police say Castellanos has no family in the United States. They asked the Mexican Consulate to contact his relatives in Mexico.

Investigators released photos of his tattoos and descriptions of his clothes last week in hopes of identifying him.

Police say a 2002 Cadillac traveling west on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard hit Castellanos as he crossed mid-block about 10:20 p.m. June 15.

He died the next day.

The driver of the Cadillac, Brian Dreggors, 25, was not cited.

No further information was available.
