TAMPA — A man killed last month after stepping into the path of a truck was identified by authorities Thursday as Albert Wade Weaver, 64, of Tampa.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Weaver stepped into the road the afternoon of Feb. 19 as a truck towing a heavy trailer was heading north on Florida Avenue near Fletcher Avenue.
The Ford truck, driven by Timothy Harvey Danenhower, 41, of San Antonio, Fl., struck him, troopers said. Weaver died at the scene. Danenhower was not injured.
The patrol said it released Weaver's name after it was able to contact his out-of-state relatives to notify them of his death.
