TAMPA — A 47-year-old man died Tuesday when he was struck by an SUV while trying to cross E Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The man was walking northbound across King Boulevard near Lake Drive at about 6:30 p.m. when he walked into the path of a 2008 GMC Acadia heading west, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The pedestrian was struck and died at the scene. Troopers have not released his name because investigators have not yet notified his family.
The driver of the Acadia and a passenger were not injured in the crash. Both were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.
