Police identify pedestrian killed in Wednesday crash

St. Petersburg police identified the man who died in an accident Wednesday on 66th Street North.

Randy L. Howell, 56, was struck by a BMW 330i as he crossed 66th Street North near the intersection of 38th Avenue North. Police said the BMW's driver, Ramiz Suljic, 28, did not see Howell until the last second and swerved to avoid the man, who was not in a crosswalk.

Howell rolled onto Suljic's hood and onto the ground. He was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg, where he died. Police said his blood alcohol level was .31 when he arrived at the hospital. No charges are expected for Suljic, police said.
