SARASOTA, Fla. – A 53-year-old Sarasota woman was hit and killed by a drunk driver, according to Florida Highway Patrol troopers.
It happened Saturday afternoon when troopers say Blake C. Talman, 22, was fleeing from another crash scene.
Talman reportedly lost control of his Nissan Altima on State Road 758 north of Glebe Lane when troopers say he struck Donna L. Chen as she was walking her dog on a sidewalk.
Can you say Drunk Driver?
After the collision, Talman’s vehicle also hit landscaping, a street sign, and several wooden poles at the entrance of St. Michael’s Archangel Catholic Church.
Meantime, a second vehicle had stopped to avoid Talman’s vehicle, but that didn’t stop the two cars from coming into contact.
That second driver, an 18-year-old woman, sustained minor injuries.
According to FHP reports, Talman’s vehicle also hit a telephone pole before coming to a stop.
Both Talman and his passenger, a 24-year-old man, sustained serious injuries and were transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
According to authorities, the dog was also hit along with his owner, who was killed — and the terrified dog ran from the scene.
The dog was so mortified, he ran and ran and ran — and when he ran out of land, he ran into the Gulf Of Mexico.
Thanks to this kind and loving fisherman, the dog was reunited with his mourning family.
