Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road, #26

Volusia County man killed in pedestrian crash

Well, here we have yet another death occurring under the less-than-watchful eyes of Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson and Deland Police Chief Bill Ridgeway. As with all of these 26 cases thus far, it wouldn’t have happened if the pedestrian had remained on the sidewalk or crossed the street when and where legally entitled to do so.

May God bless the family of this victim- and may God bless and comfort Linda Williams and her family in the days, months and years to come.

A 49-year-old Volusia County man was struck and killed Wednesday night by a sport-utility vehicle in DeLand, troopers said. The unidentified Pierson man was taken to Florida Hospital DeLand but died of his injuries following the 9:10 p.m. crash on U.S. Highway 17, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said the victim walked into the path of Linda Williams’ Dodge SUV as she was headed southbound on U.S. 17 near Palmetto Avenue in DeLand. Williams, 58, of Pomona Park struck the victim, who rolled onto the vehicle and hit the windshield.
