pedestrian struck twice crossing dark roadway

A 59-year-old pedestrian was killed after being hit by two vehicles while crossing a dark stretch of road late Sunday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The incident happened at 62nd Avenue and Lincoln Way about 11 p.m., according to the FHP. The road was dark, and there were no pedestrian crosswalks.

The unidentified St. Petersburg man was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where he died. Troopers said he was about 240 feet from an intersection that was marked and lighted for pedestrian crossing. He was also wearing dark clothes.

Troopers said 27-year-old Sarah M. McHenry of St. Petersburg was eastbound on 62nd Avenue N when she struck the pedestrian near Lincoln Way. The crash sent the pedestrian to the opposite side of the road, where he was struck by a westbound vehicle driven by 26-year-old Ryan Cole Whitmill of St. Petersburg.
