Sadly, there are about two fatal pedestrian accidents in Florida each day. A Florida pedestrian crash often leaves victims with serious injuries and the crash can often be deadly. In 2019, more than 500 people were killed in pedestrian accidents on our roadways and were often innocent victims who were killed due to the actions of a negligent driver.
Our condolences go out to the victim's family during this difficult time.
