Pedestrian, 19, killed while walking in Gibsonton street

GIBSONTON — A 19-year-old pedestrian was killed while walking in the middle of Big Bend Road late Thursday, deputies said.

It was not immediately clear why Neeshala R. Maraj, 19, of Tampa was walking in the middle of the street, just west of U.S. 41 around 11 p.m.

Maraj was hit by a 2012 Ford driven by Gary Frederick Muder, 39, of Riverview, deputies said. Muder was driving west along Big Bend Road at the time of the collision.

An investigation was under way Friday.
