On Sunday morning at 7am, a 59 year old woman, Aida Ramos Modesti, got off a bus and then attempted to cross the road near the intersection of Hwy. 192 and Poinciana Boulevard in Kissimmee. Modesti stepped directly into the path of an oncoming Honda van and was fatally struck by the vehicle.
Florida Highway Patrol is currently on the scene and investigating the incident.
We encourage people to be extremely cautious when crossing roads and especially intersections. Use the traffic signals as they were designed to be used. Drivers do not always see pedestrians and with the amount of distracting driving taking place, it is more dangerous than ever on the roads.n Please be safe and perhaps less terrible losses like this will take place.
