News: Woman fatally struck by car in Broward wildlife management area

BROWARD COUNTY, FL – The Broward County Sheriff’s Office reported that a woman was struck and killed by a car in the Holey Land Wildlife Management Area.

The accident happened Saturday night on a levee service road in the area at about 8:30 p.m.  According to traffic homicide detectives, 33-year-old Jonathan Pollow of Miami was driving a Subaru WRX westbound when he approached a stopped Dodge Ram pickup facing eastbound.

As he passed alongside the pickup, investigators said the pedestrian stepped out from behind the vehicle directly into Pollow’s path.  She was hit by the vehicle’s front bumper, and the impact sent her into the swale along the side of the road.

The sheriff’s office said Pollow could not reach emergency services because there was no cell service at the location, so he kept driving and a passenger in the vehicle contacted Palm Beach County Fire Rescue.

Pollow returned to the scene and began CPR on the pedestrian. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and rescue crews then arrived and pronounced her dead.

Detectives do not believe excessive speed or mechanical malfunction were factors in the accident.
