ST. PETERSBURG — A 29-year-old man was hospitalized Thursday night after being struck by a car as he walked along a street, police said.
Jonathan Daniel Eyer of St. Petersburg was walking along northbound 58th Street N near 13th Avenue N in the curb lane just after 10 p.m. when he stepped into the path of a Chevrolet and was struck.
He was taken to Bayfront Medical Center with what appeared to be life-threatening injuries, St. Petersburg police said.
