Pedestrian is struck and killed by vehicle in Tampa

TAMPA — A pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle traveling on U.S. 41 in Tampa Friday night.

The Florida Highway Patrol said James Warfle, 43, of Gibsonton, was walking northward on U.S. 41 just south of 36th Avenue South at the edge of the road when he was struck by a 1998 Ford pickup truck traveling in the same direction at 10:24 p.m.

The right-front side of the truck, which had just changed lanes, hit Warfle, the FHP said. He died at the scene.

Robert Barnhardt, 50, of Spring Hill was driving the Ford and apparently was not injured, FHP said.
