Two Tampa pedestrians killed crossing streets
TAMPA -- Two pedestrians were struck and killed in separate accidents Thursday night and Friday morning, officials said.
Investigators said Raymond Curtis Kelly, 61, of 6537 W Hillsborough Ave. was crossing Hillsborough Avenue west of George Road about 11 p.m. when he was hit by a 1990 Chevrolet driven by Henry Burnside, 47, of Tampa.
Kelly was then run over by the driver of another car, which did not stop, officials said. He was died at the scene. Sheriff's deputies are trying to identify the driver of the second car. The accident remained under investigation Friday night.
The second accident happened Friday at 6:30 a.m. on Hanley Road, north of Hanna Avenue.
Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Rod Reder said Manouchka Aguy, 21, was running to catch a bus when she darted into traffic and was hit and killed by a 1991 Ford pickup.
The truck, driven by 32-year-old Alexis Seijo of Tampa, was heading south on Hanley Road. Reder said Aguy was a Haitian immigrant on her way to classes at Brewster Technical School. No charges were filed Friday.
Firefighters to sell t-shirts for charity
TAMPA -- Firefighters raising money for a local widows and childrens fund will sell T-shirts Saturday and Sunday at O'Brien's Irish Pub from 6 p.m. until closing.
The pub, a favorite of local firefighter Brian Muldowney and his brother Richard, a New York firefighter who died in the World Trade Center attacks, is at 11744 Dale Mabry Highway N. The T-shirts, which cost $10, show firefighters hoisting an American flag amid the trade center rubble.
Hillsborough County Firefighter Local 2294 has raised more than $400,000 for New York firefighters and now wants to direct attention toward local widows and children.
