JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A pedestrian died in a crash involving a Hyundai on the Southside Wednesday night, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The crash happened on Southside Boulevard at Cargal Street and involved a white Hyundai, FHP said. The victim, a 77-year-old man, was confirmed dead at the scene.
According to a report from FHP, the Hyundai was traveling south on Southside Boulevard in the left lane and the pedestrian was walking east alongside his bicycle on Southside Boulevard. The driver had a green light and went through the intersection when the pedestrian failed to yield the right of way and walked into the path of the vehicle, the report says.
That's when the front of the Hyundai hit the pedestrian, who died from his injuries.
The FHP report says the investigation is ongoing and charges are pending.
