A 92-year-old man died after an auto accident in Polk County.

On behalf of Omar Medina Law Firm posted in Mulberry.

Edd Myers, 92, died after he was hit by a car shortly after the accident. According to reports, Mr. Myers had crossed State Road 37 to check his mailbox on the other side. He then turned around to cross the road again and walked into the path of a Toyota Camry driven by Jonathan Spears, 37. Mr. Spears tried to avoid hitting Myers but was not able to stop in time. He then immediately stopped to perform CPR on Myers until emergency crews came to the scene. Myers was transported to Bartow Regional Medical Center where he died of fatal injuries.

Spears was not believed to be impaired at the time and no charges are pending. Several hours after the auto accident State Road 37 was shut down. The investigation is ongoing at this time.
