On the night of February 19, 2024, a tragic accident occurred in Bradenton, Florida, leaving an unidentified man critically injured. The incident unfolded as a 62-year-old woman from Bradenton was driving her car northwest on 301 Boulevard East, nearing the intersection of 5th Street East, under the cover of darkness.

Simultaneously, the man was walking along the north paved shoulder of 301 Boulevard East, heading towards the same intersection. At approximately 9:40:00 PM, the man attempted to cross 301 Boulevard East, stepping onto the roadway directly into the path of the oncoming sedan.

Despite the driver’s efforts to avoid a collision, the front of her car collided with the pedestrian. The impact was severe, leading to critical injuries for the man. Manatee County EMS responded swiftly to the scene and transported the injured pedestrian to a local hospital for urgent medical care.

The Florida Highway Patrol has launched an investigation into the incident to determine the factors that contributed to the crash. As of now, the identity of the injured man remains unknown, and the driver of the sedan has not been identified. The FHP’s inquiry aims to shed light on the sequence of events and ascertain any potential factors, such as visibility or speed, that may have played a role in the accident.

The community is urged to remain cautious while walking or driving near roadways, particularly during low-light conditions. This tragic incident serves as a reminder of the importance of road safety and vigilance, both for pedestrians and motorists.
