SEFFNER — A 50-year-old pedestrian was killed after being struck Wednesday afternoon by a semitrailer truck on Interstate 4, authorities said.
The man from Seffner, whose name was not released, was taken to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition, but died.
The Florida Highway Patrol said the crash happened about 2:45 p.m. near the Kingsway Road overpass.
The semi driven by Thomas Alan Coleson, 43, of Jackson Springs, N.C., was headed east on the interstate. The pedestrian was walking east along the shoulder but, for some reason, walked into the path of the truck, troopers said. Coleson was not injured.
