CARLSTADT, N.J. – A 64-year-old Carlstadt man was struck and killed as he crossed a Florida street while on vacation with his wife and friends, authorities said.
The others had gotten across the road when Raymond Kellen, who was walking behind them, was struck just before 9 p.m. Tuesday, said police in Satellite Beach, on a peninsula just south of Cape Canaveral.
Kellen died at a local hospital, they said.
The driver, a 25-year-old Satellite Beach woman, told investigators That Kellen “just appeared in front of her and she had no time to react. [She] immediately stopped at the scene and waited for police.”
“It’s still very early in our investigation,” Satellite Beach Police Commander Brad Hodge said. “[H]owever, based on the information we have, it appears that Mr. Kellen did not see the car coming as he followed behind his wife and group of friends as they crossed [State Road] A1A.
“There were no indications that the driver was impaired in any way and she was fully cooperative with our investigators at the scene,” Hodge said.
