SARASOTA -- A man was killed Monday morning when he was struck by a vehicle while cutting grass on a road median, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
John Patrick McMahon, 45, was cutting grass on the median's curb on McIntosh Road walking westbound near the intersection of McIntosh Road with Stoney Brook Boulevard while the involved vehicle was driving eastbound on the same road, troopers said.
The 51-year-old driver of the vehicle said his vision was impaired due to sun glare, and he failed to negotiate a left curve in the road, according to a release. When the vehicle veered to the left it struck the curb and McMahon.
McMahon was hit by the windshield and left side mirror at 8:15 a.m. and was pronounced dead on scene, according to FHP.
