TAMPA — Two men were in critical condition Thursday night after they were hit by cars in two separate accidents on N Nebraska Avenue.
Just before 6 p.m., Patrick Brantley, 28, of 508 E Flora St., was riding in his homemade go-cart down E Flora Street when he attempted to cross N Nebraska Avenue, according to Tampa police.
He made it across three of the four lanes before being hit by a Ford F-150 driven by 38-year-old Geoffrey Martin, police said.
Brantley was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital and has life-threatening injuries.
Later in the evening, a man walking across N Nebraska Avenue near 142nd Avenue was hit by a truck and thrown into a HART bus, according to The Florida Highway Patrol.
Troopers say the man was not in the crosswalk when Daniel Romero, the car's driver, hit him. The pedestrian, who has not been identified, was taken to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition.
