Georgia Driver Runs Over Pedestrian in Leon County, Florida


February 09, 2019

LEON COUNTY, FL. – A Georgia driver ran over a pedestrian in Leon County, Florida, according to an online news report published at tallahassee.com. The circumstances of the collision are not entirely clear, but it appears the pedestrian might have run into the path of the driver’s vehicle.* 

The collision occurred in the late evening in Leon County, Florida. At approximately 9:30 p.m., a Ford F-150 pickup truck was traveling west on Interstate 10 and somehow struck a pedestrian in the roadway. It is not clear where on the interstate this happened, as no mile marker or exit number was reported. 

The events leading up to the collision are not entirely settled, but a witness at the scene told Florida Highway Patrol that the pedestrian was running in the shoulder of the interstate, then darted into the westbound lanes. The pedestrian sustained fatal injuries in the crash and died at the scene. Officials have identified him as 32-year-old Terry N. Cain, of Bonifay, Florida. 

Preliminary investigation seems to indicate the driver of the F-150 did not have time to avoid hitting Cain. The driver has been identified as Michael Brown, of Meigs, Georgia. Brown’s age was not reported. No charges have been filed against Brown in connection with the accident at this time. 

Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating the crash, and Troopers have not yet provided any information about why Cain was running on the interstate or why he might have run into oncoming traffic. They have not said whether a toxicology analysis will be performed. No further information is available at this time.
