A Georgia woman was killed and her husband injured when they were struck by a pickup truck while crossing the street to have dinner at a nearby restaurant in Daytona Beach Shores. The investigation into the fatal pedestrian accident is still underway, but police say that the 67-year-old victim and her 62-year-old husband were a Woodstock, Georgia, couple vacationing in the area. Police say the couple was crossing Atlantic Avenue around 12:10 p.m. when they were struck by a Ford ranger driven by a 64-year-old Daytona Beach Shores man.
Three longtime friends and passionate cyclists were halfway through an 850-mile journey when the trip ended in tragedy. Two of the Sanford men were killed and the other injured when they were struck by a van while riding through rural Georgia. The men were indulging their love of cycling and spending time together while raising money for a DeBary-based Christian mission. Their journey began when they loaded their bikes into a rental van bound for Washington, D.C., where they posed for pictures in their riding gear in front of the White House and began their trip back home to Central Florida.
