IMMOKALEE, Fla.- The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal accident involving a pedestrian, who has since been identified as 71-year-old Isnady Dorcent, on Gaunt St. at E. Eustis Ave.

The driver of the vehicle that hit Dorcent spoke with WINK News. He was very upset and crying as he told us that he tried to stop in time, but that he hit an older man in the back as he was crossing the street. The driver claims to have been going about 15 miles per hour.

Dorcent was taken to North Collier Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

FHP determined Dorcent stepped out in front of the driver, so the driver will not be charged.
