The crash happened at SR-91 SB near Boca Raton in Palm Beach County.

The 52-year-old woman who hit the man wasn’t hurt. She was driving a 2004 BMW at the time, troopers said.

The woman had been traveling east while the man walking was driving west on Boca Raton Road. Somehow, the man’s car became disabled, so he got out of the vehicle and tried to walk from the north to the south side of the street, troopers said.

The BMW driver was unable to avoid the man as he walked in front of her car, troopers said.

First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the accident happened and the victims were transported to Boca Raton Regional Hospital for treatment.
