COPY-Pedestrian hit by 5 cars, only one stops

Associated Press - August 10, 2007 5:04 AM ET

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say five drivers struck a pedestrian as he tried to cross a Tampa highway but only 1 of them stopped to help.

The pedestrian died while trying to cross Interstate 4 during a storm on Tuesday.

The Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating the case.

One FHP official says he believes the drivers did not know they hit anything because the man was in dark clothing and it was dark outside because of the storm.

It was unclear why the pedestrian was trying to cross the road.
