Lakeland dangerous roadway skateboarder accidents
A man on his skateboard was struck and killed late Friday night while riding down Clubhouse Road in Lakeland, according to Polk County police. Scott Michael Sherman, of Lakeland, was hit by Terrance Rashon Green, also of Lakeland, near Harrell’s Nursery Road. Green stopped and tried to aid Sherman after he hit him, but Sherman was pronounced dead at the scene. A review of the area by investigators reveals that Green was not speeding at the time and that visibility was low due to a lack of street lights in the area. Polk County authorities have indicated that the investigation is ongoing and it may be some time while they sort out the situation.
