DANIA BEACH, FL – A Dania Beach man was fatally struck by a vehicle last Thursday night, authorities said.
The Broward County Sheriff’s Office identified the victim of the pedestrian accident as 63-year-old William Bessing.
Investigators said Bessing was walking eastbound across the 1300 block of South Federal Highway at about 10:23 p.m. when he entered the path of a 2019 Nissan Rogue and was struck. Bessing was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital and pronounced dead.
The driver of the Nissan, 53-year-old Rodney Moore of Dania Beach, stopped his vehicle, stayed at the scene and cooperated with investigators.
