Mark D. MacDonald, 59, of Palm Harbor died from injuries sustained in a collision that occurred around 8 p.m. Christmas Eve.

Sergeant Steve Gaskins with the Florida Highway Patrol said MacDonald was crossing the northbound lane of Palm Harbor Boulevard when he was hit by a 2018 Hyundai Genesis. Rain and MacDonald’s dark clothing may have contributed to the accident, Gaskins said. MacDonald was not in a crosswalk when he was hit.

MacDonald was transported to AdventHealth where he later died.

The driver of the Hyundai remained on scene and is not facing charges.
