Pedestrian-Car Accident in Florida Claims One Victim, Critically Injures Another

June 6, 2012

A Florida man lost his life this week—and a woman who was walking with him was injured—when they were struck by a car while trying to cross State Road 7 in Broward County. According to police reports, the man died at the scene of the car accident and the woman is in critical condition.

The two pedestrians were struck by a car that was traveling behind another vehicle. The first vehicle swerved, presumably to avoid hitting the pair, but the driver of the second vehicle did not have time to react and hit the pedestrians. Police have indicated that the driver of the car remained at the scene and has cooperated fully with law enforcement. No charges have been filed, though the completion of the police investigation is still pending.
