EAST LAKE — A 34-year-old Safety Harbor man died at an area hospital July 4 from injuries suffered when a vehicle on East Lake Road near Woodlands Boulevard struck him.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers say Freddie Jakel Jones Jr., 24, of Trinity was driving a 2016 Hyundai Sonata, traveling northbound on East Lake Road, approaching Woodlands Boulevard about 3 a.m. Jeffrey Michael Korth was walking westbound across Woodlands Boulevard.
Troopers say the traffic light at the intersection was green when Jones entered it. Korth walked into the path of the Sonata, which hit the man in the inside travel lane.
Korth was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital where he later died.
FHP says no charges will be filed.
