CLEARWATER — A car struck and killed a 59-year-old man walking his bicycle across Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard on Tuesday night.
According to Clearwater police, Craig Allen McKown, of Clearwater, was crossing east of Belcher Road from south to north about 7:30 p.m. He was not on a crosswalk or at a traffic signal.
A Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Michael Joseph Trianos, 26, going east in the median lane struck the man, police said. The impact sent the bike into the westbound lanes, where another car hit it.
Emergency personnel took the bicyclist to Morton Plant Hospital, where he died from his injuries, according to police. Trianos is not facing charges.
