ENGLEWOOD, Fla. – An Engle­wood pedes­trian was struck and killed Fri­day night when she stepped into the path of an oncom­ing pickup truck.

Kath­leen String­ham, 60, 380 N. Elm St., was pro­nounced dead at the scene after the 10:32 p.m. acci­dent at North Indi­ana Avenue near East Perry Lane.

The crash forced Florida High­way Patrol, assisted by Sara­sota County Sheriff’s units, to close the north­bound lanes of North Indi­ana Avenue (SR 776) dur­ing the inves­ti­ga­tion and restora­tion of the site.

Accord­ing to the FHP report, Richard Edwards, 48, of Engle­wood was dri­ving his Ford F350 north in the right lane on Indi­ana Avenue while the vic­tim was walk­ing north on the east side­walk approach­ing East Perry Lane when she turned west to cross Indi­ana. There was no cross­walk. The vic­tim walked into the path of the truck and was struck.

No charges have been filed.
