Report says a Florida Keys woman is in critical condition in a Miami-Dade County hospital after being hit by a car on U.S. 1.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a 54-year-old Vicky Tucker was flown to Jackson South Medical Center in Kendall. This was after she was struck by a 2019 Toyota RAV4 driven by a 27-year-old Abdulrashod Khaitbaev of Key West.
It was reported that Tucker was walking on the southbound side of the highway when the accident occurred. Khaitbaev was reportedly driving north at mile marker 77, made a U-turn and drove onto the shoulder of the road and hit her.
According to an FHP press release, the front of Khaitbaev car hit the left side of a 2018 Kia that was heading south before it struck Tucker. The driver of the Kia, identified as a year-old-34 Dale Colburn of Marathon, was not injured, the FHP stated.
However, the passenger in the Toyota was injured. The 57-year-old Gulmiro Muminova of Brooklyn, New York, was also taken to Jackson South in serious condition.
