Largo Pedestrian Killed Crossing Seminole Boulevard

A 56-year-old man was struck by a Ford Taurus on Sunday night and later died from his injuries, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

A 56-year-old Largo man died after he was struck by a car while crossing Seminole Boulevard on Sunday night.

Michael Patrick Bain was crossing Seminole at 110th Avenue North around 7:49 p.m. Sunday when he walked into the path of a 1997 Ford Taurus traveling southbound, according to a Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson.  

Bain "received critical injuries" and was taken to Largo Medical Center, where he died a short time later, Sgt. Steve Gaskins wrote in a media release.

The Taurus' 71-year-old driver, Thomas R. Lardani, has not been charged. He received minor injuries.

The incident remains under investigation.

And the list keeps growing. Crossing Seminole Blvd is dangerous, and other than just talk, the list will continue to grow, as well as Roadside Memorials.

Sadly wont be the last. People cross busy streets all the time. And using crosswalks-yeah right that doesn't happen very much. How about ticketing them. Some even cross when the sign says dont cross. Either they cant read a big orange hand or they are idiots.

The underlying problem remains. We need better crossings, elevated or similar. I was struck crossing Starkey Rd, IN the crosswalk, with the crossing sign. Accidents happen. Rather than calling people idiots or placing blame, we need real solutions.
