Pedestrian killed in St. Petersburg crash

ST. PETERSBURG — A man was killed while walking against the light in the middle of 34th Street late Sunday.

The man, who was not immediately identified, "staggered" west from the center median into the middle of the street just after 10:15 p.m., police said.

As the pedestrian continued into the street, a traffic light for southbound cars turned green.

That's when the man walked into the path of a 1999 Toyota sedan, traveling about 35 mph, police said.

The center-lane crash threw the pedestrian to the pavement. The man was transported to Bayfront Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead about 11:15 p.m.

An investigation is underway.
