Pedestrian struck and killed on Pinehurst Drive in Seminole


Pinellas deputies continue to investigate following a crash that resulted in the death of a pedestrian in the Seminole Lake Country Club Estates.

According to investigators, at approximately 10:21 p.m. on December 7, 2019 a 17 year-old female driver from Seminole was driving her 2018 Toyota Corolla south on Burning Tree Drive, and turned west onto Pinehurst Drive.

Deputies say that the pedestrian, 66-year-old Stephen McGill of Seminole, was standing in the roadway, on the north side of Pinehurst Drive, approximately 40 feet west of Burning Tree Drive, when he was struck by the right front bumper of the Toyota Corolla.

Investigators say the intersection has very poor lighting, and trees and surrounding shrubbery further obstruct visibility when turning west onto Pinehurst Drive from southbound Burning Tree Drive.

McGill was transported to St. Petersburg General Hospital where he was later pronounced deceased from injuries sustained in the crash.

Deputies say it is unknown why McGill was standing in the roadway.

Investigators do not believe speed nor impairment were factors in the crash.

The investigation continues.
