St. Petersburg man in critical condition after being hit by car

ST. PETERSBURG — A man was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries Sunday morning after he was hit by a car, police said.

Benjamin Saxe, 29, of St. Petersburg, was trying to cross 16th Street at Central Avenue about 1:30 a.m. when he was hit by Cadillac sport utility vehicle, according to St. Petersburg police. Saxe was in the crosswalk, witnesses told police, but the driver — Willie Keys, 41, of St. Petersburg — had a green light. Keys was not injured, police said.

Saxe was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where he was in critical condition Sunday night, according to a hospital representative.
