85-year-old man killed by car in Florida

If you enjoy walking along the roadways, this story about an 85-year-old man who was struck and killed by a truck may frighten you. The wrongful death allegedly took place around 7:45 p.m. on Jan. 19, according to reports, when an 85-year-old man was hit and killed by a car.

Reports state that the man was walking east on the center line between two lanes on U.S. Highway 27 when the accident happened, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The driver of the Ford Ranger, a 36-year-old man, was attempting to change lanes when he hit the man. He claims he didn't see the 85-year-old because the man was wearing dark clothing. Police have reported that there was no ambient lighting in the area at the time of the accident.

The Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating the incident, because it's not clear why the man was in the roadway. He could have been crossing the highway or there for any other reason. It wasn't clear if he was visible to drivers, and the sun would have set for the day.

In this case, a driver didn't see a man in the road, and that led to death. It's important to know that not all wrongful death cases will be clear cut; distracted drivers and those under the influence can be held accountable for the injuries they've caused. If you're interested in learning more about what you can do in your circumstances, you may want to seek legal help. There may be steps you can take to claim compensation.
