JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- An elderly man died Friday night after being struck by a truck while crossing near the intersection of Lem Turner Road and Lila Avenue.
According to Detective Brian Blaquiere of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, the truck was traveling south on Lem Turner when it struck the man.
The pedestrian did not cross at a crosswalk, Blaquiere said. The truck initially did not stop after striking the man, who died at the scene.
However, the driver of the truck did eventually return to the scene and was questioned by police.
Blaquiere said he has seen four pedestrian-related fatalities in the nearby area in the past year-and-a-half.
