A1A Remains Closed After Pedestrian Hit And Killed In Indian River
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. — A deadly crash shut down A1A at 920 Hwy in both directions in Vero Beach.
Florida Highway Patrol confirmed that a vehicle lost control and struck a pedestrian and his dog.
The man and the dog were both pronounced dead at the scene, troopers said. Troopers are no longer releasing the names of crash victims because of privacy reasons.
The vehicle in the crash, a 2018 dark blue Chevy Impala, was not connected to a recent shooting in Fort Pierce, St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Brian Hester said. Even though the two incidents happened in the same time frame, neither are related to each other.
Hester said information on social media trying to connect the two events are “just rumors.”
The Chevy’s driver, 28, and two passengers, 40 and 35, all of Fort Pierce, had minor injuries from the collision, troopers said.
This is the second fatal wreck to happen on State Road A1A within three days.
The vehicle struck the man and his dog who were both walking on the east grass shoulder, troopers said. The Chevy driver stopped on the west grass shoulder.
The investigation is ongoing.
