The name of the driver and one of the men he hit in two accidents Friday on Broward Boulevard have been released by Fort Lauderdale police.
The driver was identified as Frank Munoz, 45, of Miami.
According to police, Munoz was eastbound in a 1997 Nissan Altima on West Broward Boulevard about 8:30 p.m. He hit an unidentified pedestrian who had walked into traffic at Northwest Seventh Avenue.
The impact caused the pedestrian to hit his head on the median, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Munoz apparently did not know what he had hit, and tried to make a U-turn to check.
When he did so, at Northwest Fifth Avenue, he struck a bicyclist, police said.
The cyclist was identified as Russell Franklin, 62, of Fort Lauderdale. Franklin suffered minor injuries, and was taken to Broward Health Medical Center.
Police said they do not believe Munoz was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
The identity of the first pedestrian was being withheld Sunday while police tried to locate and notify his family of his death.
Police said they were still actively investigating both incidents, and asked anyone with information to call Fort Lauderdale police Traffic Homicide investigators at 954-828-5754.
