Winter Garden Home Crash Kills 71-year-old Pedestrian
A car struck a house in Winter Garden on Monday, injuring one man and killing another. It happened just east of the Horizon West neighborhood along Wild Blackberry Trail around 11 a.m. A 22-year-old driver of a Toyota Camry allegedly failed to handle a bend and hit a mailbox, tree, and light post before running over a 71-year-old pedestrian.
According to authorities, the Toyota kept going and ran into a porch attached to a house’s front. The Toyota driver was taken by ambulance to the hospital with critical wounds. The pedestrian, who was 71 years old, was pronounced dead at the spot. Tears, astonishment, and perplexity were there. People claim that the neighborhood is typically calm.
One of several neighbors who lived close to Wild Blackberry Trail who heard the red Camry leaving its path of destruction was Christina Tadrus. “I sprinted outdoors and heard cars speeding toward the scene and people yelling. I was sitting in my living room when I heard a smash outside. It was audible. It was pretty scary, Tadrus added. I hurriedly sprang up and bolted after seeing the automobile smash into the house and pull off columns.
I had never seen anything like that before, so my heart fell. The residents of the Horizon West community feel insecure and brokenhearted while troopers try to determine how and why this happened. “I might have come by foot. We just had a child, my wife and I. Things like this are simply beyond comprehension. Jordan Kleiman, a neighbor, said, “I simply can’t believe this could happen.

The property is close to the residence of Erich Dale. Dale stated, “It’s awful to see someone not returning home tonight. The house where the accident occurred used to be next door to Dale’s residence. He claims that speeding is a common issue. The New Independence Parkway to Old Thicket Trace, which connects to Disney, is a particularly good cut-through between the 429 junctions, he said.
According to Dale, many motorists disregard stop signs. It can be as early as 8 a.m. when someone is rushing to work. There is school traffic here. At 2:00 a.m., we have it even. We hear someone driving through our neighborhood while inside our home. They can only pass quickly if they run stop signs, he continued. It is a frightening reality for locals like Doug Knisely, who walks through the neighborhood every day.

I usually turn around and take a peek if I hear a car when we are out walking because you never know what can happen. At that moment, he claimed some of these cars traveled far beyond the speed limit. According to neighbors, speed bumps and stop signs would transform the area. Both the driver and the pedestrian are still unknown. The Camry’s driver, who was gravely hurt, is receiving medical attention.
