A 38-year-old Bradenton man was taken to Blake Hospital on Thursday after being hit by a 2013 Audi at 5410 14th St. W.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, Carlos J. Gonzalez failed to yield to the oncoming car and crossed into the path of the Audi.
The Audi, driven by Ricky Hallaway of St. Pete, was southbound on U.S. 41 traveling in the center lane approaching the pedestrian and the drive access to a Racetrac gas station.
Gonzalez, according to FHP, didn't see the oncoming Audi and attempted to cross the southbound lanes of U.S. 41 and walked into the Audi's path. The left front corner of the Audi struck Gonzalez's right side sending him airborne before he landed on the pavement.
