Pedestrian Killed In Crash In Oakland Park

On Friday January 8, 2021 at around 8:45pm, an unnamed  pedestrian died after being hit by a car at the intersection of NW 38th Street and Powerline Road. 

The preliminary investigation by Broward Sheriff’s Office indicates that the pedestrian was walking westbound near the intersection and got into the path of silver 2002 Honda Civic. Herman Mantock, who was driving the Civic, was traveling southbound in the right thru lane of NW 38th St and Powerline Road. 

After Mantock struck the victim he pulled into a parking lot south of where the incident occurred. Mantock was not hurt and he cooperated fully with authorities during the preliminary investigation.
