Police Identify Pedestrian Killed in North St. Pete
The man was struck by a car at 38th Avenue North and Dr. MLK Street last Monday.
A 31-year-old man from Zephyrhills has been identified by police as the pedestrian who was struck by a van and killed last week in north St. Petersburg.
Mark Douglas Rennie was hit by a vehicle when he darted into traffic.
Police said that at about 6:55 a.m. Monday, March 11, a 2010 Honda minivan driven by Gene C. Clarman was eastbound on 38th Avenue North in the curb lane.
Rennie was walking north along the east sidewalk of MLK. For an unknown reason, the pedestrian darted off the southeast corner of the intersection and into the path of the oncoming Honda.
Rennie was struck and thrown into the front windshield. As the Honda began to slow, he slid off the vehicle and was dragged for a short distance as the Honda came to final rest.
The pedestrian was transported to Bayfront Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
