Clearwater police still trying to identify pedestrian killed in accident

CLEARWATER — Police have released another photo that they hope will help identify a pedestrian who was struck and killed by a car this week.

The man, who is about 30, years old, was hit by a 2002 Cadillac about 10:20 p.m. Tuesday near the 1600 block of Gulf-to-Bay. He died Wednesday.

He is described as Hispanic, about 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 10, about 150 pounds with straight, black hair down to his collar. He had no facial hair and a faded tattoo on his left shin that read "VET GR 11." He was wearing a T-shirt, blue jeans, brown work boots and had two gold rings, police said.

Police on Thursday released a photo of another tattoo, on the victim's back, which reads "MARTHA."

The driver of the Cadillac, Brian Dreggors, 25, of Clearwater was westbound on Gulf-to-Bay when he struck the man, who was crossing mid-block. Dreggors was not cited.

Anyone with information on the man's identity is asked to call Clearwater Police at (727) 562-4422.
