Pedestrian Dead After Attempted Crossing Of Busy Street

FORT MYERS, FL -- A pedestrian was killed during rush hour traffic as he attempted to cross busy U.S. 41.

A 1995 Dodge pickup truck was traveling southbound on US 41 approaching Sanibel Blvd in the inside lane at about 9:04 a.m. Tuesday when a pedestrian was crossing the southbound lanes of US 41 from the west grassy shoulder in a easterly direction.

Due to traffic in the other lanes, the driver, Chris Lawrence Spoke, 51 of Cape Coral could not see the pedestrian, Domingo Cuevas Hernandez, 35 of Fort Myers, approach before entering the vehicle's path. 

As a result, the front right of the vehicle struck the pedestrian. After impact, the pedestrian was thrown into the center lane of southbound US 41. The vehicle came to a controlled stop in the inside lane of southbound US 41. The pedestrian was pronounced deceased on scene.

No charges are likely to be filed, said the FHP.
