Police identify pedestrian killed in Courtney Campbell crash

TAMPA — Police have identified the pedestrian killed Saturday night in a crash on the Courtney Campbell Parkway.

She was identified as Lynne Novello, 46, of Apollo Beach.

The fatality happened just before 11 p.m. near Bay Harbour Drive. Novello and her husband had just left Hogan's Beach and were walking back to their hotel room at the Westin when she walked ahead of her husband and tried to run across the street alone, Tampa police said.

Matthew Miller, 56, was headed west in a Ford Expedition when he failed to see Novello crossing the road. Miller slammed on the brakes, but could not avoid hitting Novello, who died at the scene.

Miller was not cited in the crash. The westbound lanes of the parkway were closed for hours while police investigated.

An investigation remained under way Monday.
