ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a pedestrian in central Florida is dead after being struck by a deputy sheriff on her way to a call.
Officials report two deputies were responding to a report of four suspects fleeing in a stolen vehicle. One of the suspects was armed.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office deputies were in two separate cars, one traveling behind the other.
The Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/TrNzbU ) reports a 52-year-old man started to cross the street the deputies were driving down Friday at about 10:30 p.m. The deputy in the first vehicle was able to swerve and avoid hitting him, but the second deputy was not.
The pedestrian's name has not been released.
