Pedestrian Struck and Killed in Holly Hill

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on August 20, 2018

Police working within the city of Holly Hill released an early report on a pedestrian accident that took place on Thursday night and resulted in the death of a woman who was on foot near to or in the street. The report describes what is currently known about the incident, although it is clear that the person’s death is still under investigation and there are a few key pieces of information that are simply not available at this time.

The first reports about the crash began to emerge at sometime around 10:00 in the evening. These reports indicated that the crash had taken place at the intersection of Walker Street and Nova Road. We now know that the police arrived at the intersection to find a 30-year-old woman lying face down in Nova Road’s southern lanes and that near to this area was a Buick sedan. It is believed that the Buick was being driven by a woman from Ormond Beach.

According to the driver of the Buick and to at least one witness who saw either all or most of the incident, the Buick was headed south along Nova Road when she approached the intersection of Nova and Walker Street. A light controls the traffic that flows through this area, and at the time that the woman reached the intersection the light for traffic along Nova Road was green. The woman then continued to travel through the intersection, driving at what is currently believed to be the limit indicated on signs nearby. This is when the Buick struck the 30-year-old pedestrian.

It is not clear if the pedestrian was standing in the street or if the driver of the car swerved towards her for reasons that are not currently known. The report states that the pedestrian was standing close to the crosswalk when she was struck but that she was not actually inside of the pedestrian zone. It is not clear if she was making her way across the intersection when she was struck or if she was just standing nearby.

At the time of this writing, it is not believed that alcohol or drugs played any role in the incident. The driver of the Buick is also not currently facing any charges in relation to the pedestrian’s death.
