TAMPA - A man leaving the Mons Venus strip club on North Dale Mabry Highway was struck and killed by a tanker truck early this morning.

The name of the man, who was crossing in the middle of the block, was not immediately available.

The truck driver told police he did not see the man crossing the street.

Dale Mabry Highway was closed for about two hours from Columbus Drive to Spruce Street while police investigated the accident. It reopened about 8:30 a.m.

No criminal charges were immediately filed, police said.
