Pedestrian dies after being struck twice in Seminole

SEMINOLE — A man crossing Park Boulevard was struck twice — once by a hit-and-run driver — early Sunday, investigators said.

The pedestrian, whose name has not yet been released, later died at a hospital,

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said the incident began around 1 a.m. Sunday. The man was crossing Park Boulevard near 110th Lane, but not in a crosswalk.

A dark gray sedan hit him and fled, deputies said. While the pedestrian was still in the roadway, he was struck again by a Honda Civic. This time, the driver stayed on the scene.

Witnesses said the car that first struck the pedestrian has a headlight out. The car was driven by a man in his 20s or 30s wearing a horizontal-striped shirt.

Anyone with information about the crash was asked to call Cpl. Keith Williams at (727) 582-6200.
