On February 27, 2019 at approximately 11:18 PM, Bradenton PD responded to the 1100 block of 1st St E for a report of a motor vehicle crash involving a pedestrian. The initial investigation revealed a pedestrian was walking from the west to east across 1st Street, not in a designated crosswalk. A vehicle traveling northbound hit the pedestrian as he crossed. The pedestrian was pronounced deceased at the scene. Speed and impairment are not factors in this crash. The driver of the vehicle, 32 year old Alecia Sugden of Bradenton, was not injured nor is she facing any charges.
We are still working to notify next of kin of the deceased.
