Man Dies After Fighting Outside Of Hospital

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — St. Petersburg police are investigating after a 59-year-old delivery man died after brawling with another man outside of St. Anthony’s Hospital.

Authorities say the delivery man was unconscious when police arrived early Wednesday morning. He died a short time later in the hospital.

Twenty-four-year-old Kevin Parkhurst told police the delivery van cut him off as he was riding his bicycle. After a verbal altercation broke out, Parkhurst says the delivery driver got a baseball bat from the van.

Police say the men struggled over the bat before Parkhurst hit the man in the face with his fist. When Parkhurst told the man he was calling police, he put the bat in the van. Then he stumbled and fell to the ground, hitting his head.

No charges have been filed.
