ST. PETERSBURG — A 62-year-old man died Sunday from injuries he received six days earlier when he was hit by a minivan while walking across Fourth Street North, police said.

St. Petersburg detectives were still searching Monday for relatives of the victim, identified as Marvin Hardy.

Hardy stepped from the curb into the road about 9:40 p.m. Sept. 28, then froze and tried to return to the curb, police said in a news release. Stephen C. Sarnoff, 68, of Clearwater, was driving north in a minivan and swerved but struck Hardy.

Sarnoff was traveling below the speed limit and remained at the scene, police said. Hardy was taken to Bayfront Health in critical condition. He died Sunday.

Anyone who knows Hardy or has information about him or his family was asked to contact the St. Petersburg Police Department at (727) 893-7780 and refer to report No. 2020-034821.
