Pedestrian killed crossing Tampa intersection

Recently, at the very moment a semi-trailer truck driver was turning left, a pedestrian, was stepping off the sidewalk.  He was hit and killed by the truck.  The truck driver, said he never saw the pedestrian.


According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department, the pedestrian was pronounced dead at 1:30 p.m.  Family members are not sure what he was doing in that area.  The driver, who has never been involved in a fatal accident, was saddened and wished it had never happened.


My condolences go out to the family.
