Man dies after being struck by hit-and-run driver in St. Petersburg

ST. PETERSBURG — A man died early Sunday after being struck by a car during a hit-and-run on 4th Street N, police said.

The man was crossing the road near 5th Avenue N around 3:10 a.m. when a vehicle slammed into him, sending the pedestrian onto the hood of the car and into the windshield before landing on the pavement, St. Petersburg police said.

The car drove off. The man was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg, where he died a short time later, police said. Police so far have not identified him.

The hit-and-run car should have damage to the front windshield. St. Petersburg Fire and Rescue personnel who were at the scene early Sunday told police they saw several drivers who had stopped on 4th Street N to take photographs with their cell phones. Police are asking for those drivers to contact the department.

Anyone with information is asked to call the St. Petersburg Police Department at (727)893-7780.

    Roads

    Despite intense public opposition and dubious traffic projections, the Florida Department of Transportation has announced that construction of the toll road known as "Suncoast 2" is expected to start in early 2018.

    The Suncoast Parkway ends at U.S. 98 just south of Citrus County. For years residents have opposed extending the toll road, a project dubbed the "Suncoast 2" into Citrus County.
