Elderly Man Struck by Car Cited for Pedestrian Violation
SPRING HILL – Crossing the Spring Hill Drive as a pedestrian isn’t safe even during daylight hours but wearing dark clothing after nightfall is a recipe for disaster. That’s exactly what happened to 70-year-old Larry Lee Cummins, after he was struck by a vehicle on New Year’s Eve while standing in the roadway near Stoneville Court.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Christopher Wayne Cornelius was driving his 2004 Infinity G35 westbound when Cummins stepped into the path of his vehicle. Cummins was struck and sustained incapacitating injuries as a result of the collision. He was transported to Bayonet Point Hospital, where his condition remains unknown at this time.
Cornelius was not charged; however. Cummins did receive a citation for a pedestrian violation. Alcohol was not a factor according to officials.
