Pedestrian Dies After Being Struck By SUV Friday Night In Nokomis

SARASOTA COUNTY – Florida Highway Patrol announced a man died Friday night after being hit by a vehicle while walking across US 41.

The accident took place as a 66-year-old man from Venice was attempting to cross the northbound lanes of US 41 near the intersection with Gulf Avenue walking in a westerly direction, heading from the eastern shoulder.

As the man continued across the highway, a sport utility vehicle driven by a 21-year-old man from Citra Florida was driving northbound on US 41, in the inside lane with two passengers, a 45-year-old man from Citra Florida and a 41-year-old woman from Citra Florida.

At 7:44:00 PM, the man from Venice entered the path of the oncoming SUV and was struck by the vehicle.

Emergency Medical Services transported the injured man to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

Both the 45-year-old male passenger and the 41-year-old female passenger of the SUV suffered minor injuries in the accident. The report also states that the female passenger had not been wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

FHP has stated that an investigation is ongoing.
