BROWARD COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A man was struck and killed by a car in North Broward County, and now the Broward Sheriff’s Office is asking for help locating the suspect.

BSO issued this advisory mid-day Monday: “Broward Sheriff’s Office Traffic Homicide Unit detectives are investigating a fatal hit-and-run crash that killed a pedestrian in Pompano Beach on Thursday.

Shortly before 8:30 p.m., an unidentified vehicle was traveling westbound on West Atlantic Boulevard near Andrews Avenue and proceeded through the intersection without stopping for the flashing red signal. The pedestrian, who was crossing southbound in the western crosswalk, was struck by that vehicle. The vehicle slowed but did not stop and continued west. A BSO deputy, who was nearby, heard the crash and immediately responded.

According to detectives, the preliminary investigation determined that the traffic signals at the intersection were malfunctioning, causing the traffic lights in all four directions to flash.

Pompano Beach Fire Rescue responded to the scene and transported the pedestrian to Broward Health North. The victim was pronounced deceased early Friday morning.  

Detectives wish to speak to anyone who witnessed the crash. Anyone with information on the driver or the vehicle involved is urged to contact BSO Traffic Homicide Det. Sean Williams at 954-321-4840, or to submit a tip through the SaferWatch App. If you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477), online at browardcrimestoppers.org, or dial **TIPS (8477) from any cellphone in the United States.”
