ST. PETERSBURG — A St. Petersburg man died early Tuesday after clipping another car at high speed, police said.

Klessig was southbound on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N, speeding and illegally passing cars.
Around the 8200 block, Klessig tried passing a 2004 Dodge minivan driven by Danny Noah Harnage, 26, of St. Petersburg. Klessig's 1998 Jeep Cherokee clipped Harnage's vehicle around 11:50 p.m. Monday, causing both vehicles to spin.
Klessig's Jeep spun and struck a concrete light pole. He was not wearing a seat belt. He had critical injuries to his upper body.
