Man From Bradenton Dies After Being Struck By Multiple Vehicles Crossing U.S. 41

MANATEE COUNTY - Florida Highway Patrol reported a pedestrian has died after being struck by multiple vehicles while attempting to cross U.S. 41 Friday night.

The crash took place as a sedan driven by a 32-year-old man from Bradenton was traveling northbound in the center lane of U.S. 41 north of Orlando Avenue.

The sedan was being followed by a van driven by a 61-year-old woman from Bradenton in the right lane, slightly behind the sedan.

As the vehicles traveled north on U.S. 41, a 58-year-old man was attempting to walk across U.S.41 in an area where there are no crosswalks.

At 9:27 PM the sedan encountered the pedestrian and side-swiped the man.

After being brushed by the sedan the man entered the outside lane of travel and was directly in the path of the oncoming van.

The right-front of the van collided with the man. The pedestrian came to a rest in the northbound right turn lane of US 41, north of where he was struck by the sedan.

After the impact, the driver of the sedan brought his cart to a controlled stop in the center lane. The driver of the van brought her van to a stop in the right turn lane of U.S. 41.

Manatee County EMS responded to the accident and pronounced the pedestrian deceased at the scene of the crash.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
