According to BSO, the man crossed the 1800 block of West Oakland Park Boulevard around 4:30 a.m. Saturday in the designated crosswalk.
Then, BSO said, “for reasons that remain under investigation, he entered the eastbound lanes and then walked north where he stood near a median.”
“It was at that point, that a vehicle traveling west in the far left lane of West Oakland Park Boulevard struck the pedestrian,” BSO said in a news release.
The driver of that car — believed to be a Mazda 6 sedan made between 2009 and 2011 — took off. The man was then hit again by a Honda Civic. The Civic driver, who originally left the scene, was later found by detectives and was cooperating, BSO said.
Detectives do not believe excessive speed was a factor in the crash.
Anyone with information is asked to call BSO THI Detective Michael Wiley at 954-321-4205 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
