News: Pedestrian struck and killed by vehicle at Pompano Beach intersection

POMPANO BEACH, FL – An investigation is underway into a fatal pedestrian crash in Pompano Beach Saturday evening, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.

The incident occurred on Sample Road, where two pedestrians were crossing at Military Trial at about 11:47 p.m.  Investigators said the driver of a Ford Edge went through the intersection and swerved to avoid one of the pedestrians but struck the other.

The person who was hit, 38-year-old Robyn Hallow of Boca Raton, was pronounced dead after being taken to an area hospital.  The driver, 51-year-old Denfield Gilead of Coral Springs, and the other pedestrian were not injured.
