Daytona, FL (March 1, 2023) - Police in Daytona are investigating after a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle on Wednesday morning, March 1st. The crash happened just after midnight in the westbound lanes of Interstate 4 near mile marker 121.

Being the victim of a Florida pedestrian crash is an extremely dangerous and vulnerable situation. Pedestrian crashes have a greater than 80% chance of resulting in death or injuries for the victim. Well over half of all Florida pedestrian accidents will end with the pedestrian being hospitalized, and about 500 people will die this year when they are struck by vehicles in Florida. These statistics are certainly sobering and present a clear picture of the dangers faced by pedestrians on our local roadways.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of the victim following this fatal Daytona pedestrian crash.
