ST. PETE, Fla — A man was seriously injured after being hit by a U-haul Friday night.

St. Pete officials say shortly after 4 p.m., a U-Haul box truck was headed southbound on 34th Street South. A 61-year-old man was walking eastbound in the east driveway of the CVS, 3426 Central Avenue. Police say Robinson continued walking toward the road as the U-Haul passed him.

The passenger-side mirror of the U-Haul hit the man in the head, sending him to the ground. The man was transported to Bayfront Health St Pete in critical condition.
