Pedestrian in St. Pete hit and run identified, new info on car

St. Petersburg, Florida -- St. Petersburg Police are looking for a car that hit and killed a pedestrian early Sunday morning.

Police say a little after 3 a.m., a man -- identified Wednesday as 24-year-old Michael Sproul -- was hit by a car described by witnesses as a newer model, black Chevrolet Impala near the north crosswalk at the intersection of 5th Avenue South and 4th Street.

Police say it appears the car tried to stop, but hit Sproul, sending him onto the hood and into the windshield before being projected onto the pavement. The vehicle then left the scene. 

Sproul was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where he later died. Officers say the Impala has dark tint on the rear door windows and back window. It should have extensive damage to the hood, front bumper and windshield.

Fire Rescue personnel noted several people who stopped their vehicles on the side of 4th Street and appeared to have taken pictures with their phones during the incident. These people are also being asked to contact the Police Department.

Anyone with ANY information about this crash is requested to contact the St. Petersburg Police Department at 727-893-7780.
