Pedestrian dies after being struck, pinned by car in St. Petersburg

ST. PETERSBURG — One man died after he was pinned under a vehicle that struck him Monday morning.

Officers responded to a crash about 7 a.m. at the 800 block of 38th Avenue N, St. Petersburg police said.

The man darted in front of a Honda Odyssey minivan as the driver was turning right on 38th Avenue N off of Martin Luther King Jr. St., said Officer Mike Jockers of St. Petersburg police. The minivan slammed into the man, police said, and his head broke through the windshield. The man was then thrown off and pinned under the car.

The pedestrian was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

At least three witnesses said the driver, who was on his way to work, had a green light and no time to react, Jockers said.

Police recovered the man's shoes from the road Monday while the minivan remained on the street.

The pedestrian and driver have not been identified yet.

An investigation remained under way.
