Homeless man struck, killed by SUV in Largo


Homeless man killed darting into traffic

A homeless man was killed late Saturday when he darted into East Bay Drive and was hit by a sport utility vehicle, according to the Largo Police Department.

Davis F. Cooney, 49, was reported by witnesses to have run into the path of several vehicles in the westbound lanes just before 10 p.m., before he was struck by a SUV driven by a 16-year-old girl. He entered the busy road midblock, not at a marked crosswalk.

Cooney died at the scene. Police said no charges are expected.
