Man walks into oncoming traffic, gets killed by a car

A man was killed by a car when he walked into oncoming traffic in Oakland Park, the Broward Sheriff's Office said Monday.

John Hanson, 56, was fatally struck about 7:30 Sunday night in the 5300 block of North Dixie Highway, just north of Commercial Boulevard.

According to BSO, Hanson was in the northbound lanes of the road, and not in a crosswalk, when he was struck by a car driven by Jessica Newton, 23, of Pompano Beach. No charges were filed.

Police asked anyone with information about the accident to call Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
