Fatal Crash Involving a Pedestrian

Update on 05-21-21 at 8:23 a.m.

The victim in last night's fatal pedestrian crash at the intersection of Pasadena Ave N and Pinellas Way N has been identified as Henry Pino-Fonte (DOB 05/18/1966).

Traffic homicide detectives say a 2003 Ford F150, driven by Timothy L. Brill (DOB 09/07/1965) was in the southbound curb lane of Pasadena Ave as Pino-Fonte crossed from the east to the west side of the street at Pinellas Way N. Brill did not see Pino-Fonte and struck him.

Pino-Fonte died at the scene. Brill stopped and is cooperating with the investigation.

Investigators do not believe that intoxication was a factor.
