Pedestrian struck while crossing road in Orange County


ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Orange County deputies are investigating a crash involving a pedestrian on Oak Ridge and Winegard roads just before 10 p.m. Friday.

Witnesses said a young man was crossing the street when a taxi struck him.

They said he was then hit by another car.

Witnesses said people ran to help the victim.

“By the time I got out of the car people were already helping him so I just parked over there and tried to see if I could do something,” Troy Negron said. “He looked real bad. The first car tore him up enough and then he got hit by the next car."
