According to the police, a 38-year-old male was brutally struck by a motor vehicle at the intersection of Lytle Street and South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach.
The car was seen traveling northbound when the pedestrian was hit. It seems the person was attempting to cross the street, West Palm Beach Police Sergeant explained.
No drugs or alcohol were involved in the incident, the sergeant added.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver was shaken up after knowing the victim had died.
“I feel so terrible,” he said. “The victim came out of nowhere, across the street into the driveway.”
The driver was on his way to drop his three young kids at a relatives house, when he had ran into the victim.
It still remains unclear if charges will be filed. The police have not released the victim’s identity yet. Anyone with relevant information concerning the crash is asked to contact the FHP department.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in a fatality.
