Pasco accidents kill St. Petersburg man, injure Port Richey woman

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating one pedestrian accident and looking for the driver who fled the scene of another late Saturday.

Both accidents occurred on U.S. 19 in Pasco County, one at 9:28 p.m. and the other at 11:18 p.m. One man was killed.

According to FHP reports, this is what happened:

In the first accident, Brandon Wayne Hensley, 27, walked into the path of a car traveling south of Mile Stretch Road. Hensley, of St. Petersburg, was transported to Helen Ellis Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 10 p.m.

Charges have not been filed against the driver, Denise Donati, 47, of Palm Harbor.

Nearly two hours after the first accident, an SUV struck Tammy B. Nunn, 44, as she walked across U.S. 19 near Westwood Drive and the driver kept going.

The FHP is asking anyone with information to call (352) 521-3888, ext. 191.

Nunn, of Port Richey, was taken to Tampa General Hospital by helicopter and was in serious condition Sunday.
