Fatal Pedestrian Collision
Last Wednesday, troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol reported on an accident that took place between a car and a pedestrian along an Orange County road. The statement outlines the events that ultimately led to the death of an 82-year-old man in an incident that is still under investigation. At close to 5:40 in the evening, Mohini, the 82-year-old Orlando resident, was on foot by Curry Ford Road, close to the intersection with Arbor View Road, when he attempted to cross the street. It seems that Mohini was able to make it across eastbound lanes without incident and had been standing in the median before deciding to cross the westbound lanes.
An unnamed man was attempting to cross South Washington Avenue in Titusville when he was struck by a car and killed on Monday night. The Florida Highway Patrol has issued an official statement that covers all the information about the incident that has been made public at this time. According to their report, the accident took place shortly before 9:30 when the man, about whom little is currently known, left the sidewalk bordering South Washington Avenue and tried to weave through the oncoming traffic as he crossed the busy street.
