BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Florida Highway Patrol provided more details on pedestrian crash that killed an 80-year-old Melbourne man on Wednesday after trying to cross State Road A1A near Casseekee Trail in Melbourne Beach.
Authorities say the man was struck Wednesday around 6:45 p.m. and was later pronounced dead at Holmes Regional.
The man was struck when he tried to cross A1A in a non-designated crosswalk area.
