Sad news this morning. The Palm Beach Post reports that a person was struck and killed by a vehicle while crossing South Dixie last night.

A pedestrian, who was struck by a vehicle in West Palm Beach Thursday, died in St. Mary’s Medical Center from injuries, authorities said.

The vehicle was traveling north on the 7100 block of South Dixie Highway and hit the pedestrian, who was pushing a shopping cart across the street, West Palm Beach Police spokeswoman Detective Lori Colombino said. The driver didn’t see the pedestrian and will not face charges at this time.

The crash occurred at about 7 p.m., and police did not release the name of the driver or the pedestrian.

Here was the tweet by WPTV report Juan Diasgranados and the community response (click on the timestamp for the full thread):

We are going to request the police report once it is released to the public after 60 days. A forthcoming series of posts about South Dixie will analyze challenges and opportunities along this roadway. Stay tuned.
