Two pedestrians killed in separate Hillsborough crashes

Two pedestrians were killed Monday in separate Hillsborough County crashes, authorities said.

In the first, a 77-year-old woman was struck and killed Monday afternoon as she tried to cross U.S. 301 at Lake St. Charles Boulevard in Riverview, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Troopers did not release the name of the victim, who was from Riverview, as they sought to notify her family of the crash.

Sidnee A. Young, 26, of Tampa was driving a Ford E-350 van with five passengers west on Lake St. Charles Boulevard shortly after 3 p.m. and did not see the woman, who was crossing U.S. 301 in a marked crosswalk just south of the intersection, troopers said. The van struck the woman, who suffered serious injuries and later died at Tampa General Hospital.

No charges have been filed.

In the second crash, a female pedestrian whose name has not been released was killed at W Waters Avenue and Henderson Road, just west of the Veterans Expressway in Town 'N Country, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

She was truck by a Ford pickup truck that fled. But the driver returned and was arrested, the Sheriff's Office said. Delvys Villafuerte Castellon, 36, of Tampa faces a charge of leaving the scene of a crash involving death.

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
