News: Pedestrian dead after being struck by vehicle in Pompano Beach

POMPANO BEACH, FL – The Broward County Sheriff’s Office reports it is investigating the death of a pedestrian in Pompano Beach last week.

The incident occurred Thursday morning in the area of Powerline Road and South Palm Aire Drive just after 8 a.m.

Traffic homicide detectives say the pedestrian was crossing Powerline Road near the intersection and outside a designated crosswalk.  Several vehicles took evasive action and narrowly missed the man, but when he darted into the path of a northbound Ford F-150 driven by a 24-year-old man, he was struck by the vehicle.

The pedestrian, whose identity was not released, was pronounced dead at the scene.
