Emergency responders work the scene where state troopers said a pedestrian was hit by a vehicle and killed Monday morning at 54th Avenue N and 66th Street in Lealman.

LEALMAN — A 78-year-old pedestrian died after being hit by a vehicle at 54th Avenue N and 66th Street early Monday, troopers said.

The St. Petersburg man, who was not immediately identified, was crossing 66th Street N in the painted crosswalk section of the road when he was hit by a 2000 Honda sedan, troopers said.

The Honda, driven by Paul F. Corbin, 48, of Pinellas Park, had been driving southbound on 66th Street and had a green light to proceed through the intersection at 54th Avenue N, troopers said.

As he drove through the intersection, the front passenger side of Corbin's car struck the man, officials said.

The pedestrian was rushed to St. Petersburg General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead just after 6 a.m.

Corbin, who was wearing his seat belt, was uninjured in the collision, troopers said. The Honda suffered about $1,000 in damages, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Eastbound lanes of 54th Avenue N were completely closed off, and only the left lane of 66th Street N was open to southbound traffic. Morning commuters were advised to seek alternate routes.

An investigation was still under way late Monday morning.
