Pedestrian killed crossing Roosevelt Blvd

Posted at 9:46 PM, May 10, 2016
Troopers are investigating a crash that killed a pedestrian Tuesday at Roosevelt Boulevard and Morgan Street in Clearwater.
 
The crash closed eastbound Roosevelt Boulevard. Specifics on how the crash occurred weren’t immediately available.
 
Neighbors said the nearest crosswalk in the area is far away, which causes people to take the risk of crossing the road without it.
 
“It's very dangerous,” resident Zenique Lee said. “The speeds are very high. People don't look out. I mean it's really sad, and I didn't know the gentleman but God bless him."
 
Residents told ABC Action News they’ve wanted a closer crosswalk for years, which would help children and people with disabilities reach a gas station across the street.
