9-year-old killed while riding bike to school wanted to be a crossing guard | 10News WTSP
A 9-year-old boy died after he was hit by a pickup truck Monday morning.
Roman Miller, of Sarasota, was struck by a black Chevy Silverado at 7:48 a.m. at the intersection of Nodosa Drive and Webber Street in Sarasota Springs, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
A 25-year-old Sarasota woman was driving the pickup truck north on Nodosa Drive when she hit Miller, who was in the crosswalk. The driver has been identified as Charity Lamb.
“When you are in the crosswalk, you have the right of way. So that vehicle should have stayed at that point, hopefully seen both and let them pass through,” said State Trooper Kenny Watson.
