A pedestrian was hit by a Jeep Monday afternoon after he tripped on a curb, St. Petersburg police said. The pedestrian died at the hospital Monday night.

The incident occurred about 2:15 p.m. on 34th Street N, though police did not release a more specific location.

Police said the pedestrian was struck by a Jeep driven by Danelle Monique Mullis, 40. Police said Mullis hit her brakes and tried to avoid hitting the pedestrian, but the right front corner of the Jeep struck him.
