A woman crossing the street last night in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea was fatally struck and detectives with the Broward Sheriff’s Office Traffic Homicide Investigations unit are investigating the crash.

Around 8 p.m. March 15, Doreen Scott was crossing the street in the 5500 block of North Ocean Boulevard when she was hit by a Nissan Rouge that was headed south on the boulevard. The driver, Frederic Barnes, stopped following the collision and remained on scene.

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Fire Rescue responded to the crash and transported Scott to Holy Cross Hospital where she was later pronounced dead. Barnes and his passenger didn’t report any injuries.
