Driver killed, pedestrian injured in Christmas Day crash near Aloma

The driver of a Toyota Camry died in a single-vehicle crash early Christmas morning near Aloma, and the damage from the crash seriously injured a nearby pedestrian, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The 43-year-old driver lost control of his vehicle on Forsyth Road about 3 a.m. Friday, striking a curb, then a sign and internet box, flipping the car. The driver, who was not identified, was partially ejected from the driver’s window, and later pronounced dead on the scene, FHP said.

A 21-year-old pedestrian, who was walking nearby at the time of the crash, was struck by an unknown part of the vehicle, and seriously injured. The pedestrian was also not identified by FHP, the agency citing Florida’s Marsy’s Law.

The extent of the pedestrian’s injuries was not reported.
