Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road, #46

Whether by sheer coincidence or simply my not noticing others that have come along, it’s been a while since the last edition of Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road.  Some things never change, though- and this is yet another tragic death that might have been prevented had law enforcement chosen to be pro-active rather than reactive when addressing pedestrian traffic issues.

Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson, this is another one on your watch…

 

Pedestrian hit, killed in Deltona

By Arelis R. Hernández, Orlando Sentinel5:47 p.m. EDT, May 12, 2013

A New York man was killed after attempting to cross a Deltona street late Saturday and was struck by a passing vehicle, Volusia County sheriff’s deputies said.

The 58-year-old’s name has not been released but deputies said he was in the 1400 block of Howland Boulevard about 9:52 p.m. when he walked into the path of a vehicle, said Brandon Haught, a sheriff’s office spokesman.

The driver, a 64-year-old Deltona woman, “didn’t have time to react,” officials said.

Haught said investigators do not suspect speed or alcohol were factors in the deadly crash.
