Truck strikes, kills man who walked into street

A man died after being struck by a truck Wednesday night, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said. The crash was reported about 10 p.m. at Park Street south of 54th Avenue N.

A Ford F-150 driven by Joshua Baron, 19, of Seminole was headed south on Park Street when Leo R. Carey Jr. walked out from behind some trees on the west side of Park Street and into the path of the F-150, deputies said. Carey was not using a crosswalk.

Carey, 53, was taken to a local hospital, where he later died, deputies said.

Baron and his passenger, 19-year-old Kory A. Brahm of St .Petersburg, were not hurt.

Alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in the crash, the Sheriff's Office said. No charges have been filed.
