It is important for all drivers to slow down in any areas where pedestrians, strollers, or cyclists are located. If a stroller is seen, there is a good reason to slow down and give the person controlling the stroller time to get to a safe sidewalk or other area.

Since a death resulted from this accident, there will be a full investigation by local law enforcement and / or the Florida Highway Patrol to determine the cause and preventability of the accident involving the pick up truck and the stroller.
