Man dies after being hit by car

SEBRING - An 82-year-old man died after he was struck by a vehicle around 9 a.m. Tuesday, Sebring police said.

Doyle Herrin was pronounced dead at 10:33 a.m. after he was transported to Highlands Regional Medical Center, Sebring Police Cmndr. Steve Carr said.

The accident apparently occurred after the man stepped onto Lakeview Drive and was struck by a vehicle driven by 89-year-old Ruby Collier, Carr said.

Based on a preliminary investigation, Carr said it doesn't appear as if charges will be filed. The final decision won't be made until after a more thorough investigation, he added.
