Bradenton FL – Florida Highway Patrol has announced that three pedestrians are in serious condition after being struck while crossing 15th Street East Thursday Afternoon.

According to the report by FHP, the fatal crash began as a Ford Pickup Truck driven by a 44-year-old man from Bradenton, was traveling north on 15th Street East in Manatee County Thursday afternoon.

As the motorist traveled north a teenager and two children, including a 15-year-old girl a 9-year-old girl, and an 11-year-old girl, all from Bradenton were on foot along 15th Street East at 3316 15th Street East (Samoset Car Wash).

At 4:35:00 PM, all three of the pedestrians entered the roadway of 15th Street East and attempted to run across the road heading east.

After crossing the southbound lane, they entered the northbound lanes and ran directly into the path of the oncoming pickup truck.

The driver of the pickup attempted to avoid crashing into the children by swerving the pickup truck to the right, but failed to miss striking the pedestrians, and collided with all three of them.

After striking the pedestrians, the truck then traveled off the right side of the roadway onto the east grass shoulder and collided with a mailbox before coming to final rest on the grass shoulder facing in a northeasterly direction.

All three of the girls ages 9,11, and 15 years old, were taken to All Children’s Hospital with serious but non-Life Threating injuries.
