Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road, #57

Another reader/viewer may have summed this one up best- when saying the best way to avoid deaths like these is that you Don’t wear a black hoodie and walk around in the middle of the road at night”.

This death falls under the watch of Ocoee Police Chief Charles Brown and Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings.  A little law enforcement on the pedestrians’ side would go along way, fellas.

A pedestrian was hit and killed by two drivers along Bluford Avenue, right near Colonial Drive in Ocoee Thursday night.

Investigators said the man was killed after trying to walk across the middle of the road and was hit by two drivers.

An investigator with the Ocoee Traffic Homicide Unit told Local 6 that a male driver in a white SUV hit the pedestrian first and then another car behind it also hit the man, causing severe head injuries.

The pedestrian was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center where authorities said he died.

Police said the pedestrian was wearing all black and both drivers told police they didn’t see the man coming. Both drivers are cooperating and it’s not clear if they will be facing any charges.
