A 13-year-old boy was struck and killed recently in a hit-and-run pedestrian accident on State Road 436 in east Orange County. Florida Highway Patrol troopers investigating the accident report that the teen was struck while attempting to cross at the intersection of Semoran Boulevard and Old Cheney Highway. Troopers say that the teen was using the crosswalk and had the right of way when he was struck by a 2002 Chevrolet Malibu driven by a 51-year-old Winter Park woman. FHP Spokesperson Sgt. Kim Montes said that the woman was traveling north on Semoran Boulevard when she ran a red light and struck the teen.
A young man was hospitalized with undisclosed injuries recently after getting his hand caught in a machine at an Orlando bakery. Details about the workplace accident are still sketchy, but police say the young man was working at around 12:30 a. m. one recent morning when his hand got caught in the auger of a machine at Aladdin Food and Bakery at 655 S. Golden Rod Road in the Rio Plaza. Firefighters arrived shortly after the accident and worked for around an hour to free the young man’s hand from the machine. They say he was preparing a large batch of bread dough when his hand got caught in the auger. Although they did not disclose the extent of the victim’s injuries, firefighters said that the teen’s fingers were intact when they extracted his hand from the machine. They said that after they freed him from the machine, they wrapped his injured hand in gauze and transported him to Arnold Palmer Hospital for treatment.
