3-Year Old Dies After being Stuck By Pickup On Sunshine Skyway Bridge Fishing Pier.


Manatee County – Florida Highway Patrol announced a tragic pedestrian accident that occurred Saturday afternoon.

The accident happened as a 19-year-old man from Lutz Florida was driving a Chevy S-10 pickup truck northbound on the South Sunshine Skyway Bridge Fishing Pier.

As the young driver traveled along, a 3-year old boy was walking westward behind a parked vehicle.

At 4:50:00 PM, the small child walked past the parked vehicle onto the roadway attempting to cross the roadway on the pier, and directly into the path of the oncoming pickup truck.

The boy was struck by the vehicle, and the vehicle came to a controlled stop at the scene of the crash.

The boy was pronounced deceased at the scene of the accident.

The accident remains under investigation.

We implore everyone to slow down and watch for pedestrians especially in recreational areas, or any area with foot traffic.
