Pedestrian hit and killed Friday night on Anderson Road

TAMPA — A Georgia man died Friday night after he was struck by a van as he crossed an intersection on Anderson Road near the Veterans Expressway, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Clarence Harry Smitherman, 63, of Albany, Ga., was crossing Anderson Road at the Veterans Expressway off-ramp at about 10:20 p.m. when he was struck, deputies said. He was walking against a "do not cross" signal.

The van, driven by Michael Antonio Walker, 42, of Tampa, was heading north on Anderson Road at about 45 mph, deputies said. Walker did not have enough time to react to Smitherman, who was wearing dark clothing, deputies said.

Smitherman died at the scene.
