I feel awful for the man that was killed. He didnt seem mentally stable but im sure everyone knew this man.he never harmed noone or ever got out of the way. All he would do is walk and walk allday of everyday. I want to say that justice was not served. This female obviously was not paying attention and I dont even see why a 16 year old was out driving alone at 5 AM. Even though her intentions were to not kill this man, she tore him apart. She took this mans life and all she is charged with is a lousy ticket of failure to not staying in her lane. Are you kidding me!? She walks away from this with her life, her family, and she will be ok. I seen this man on a daily and my heart breaks for him. Next time, pay attention, get off your PHONE, and save a life!

She was driving to work at five in the morning. And the man was wearing dark clothing. If you're going to walk at dark time always wear something bright. This was nobody's fault, it was all an accident. My prayers go out to both families.

ANYTIME someone veers off the road and causes an accident ESPECIALLY causing death,they should automatically check their cell phone to see if they were texting or checking their Facebook.
We have to get tougher about 'cell phones while driving' laws.
Prayers to the poor man she plowed down. Good to know that checking her frieds FB status was more important than a human life.

You are a great friend to Juliana. This was nothing more than a tragic accident.

It may have been an "accident", but it was an avoidable one IF SHE WAS WATCHING THE ROAD. Afterall, the man didn't walk into the road; the girl DROVE **OFF** OF THE ROAD and ran him over and KILLED him. People who pay attention, do not drive off of the road. Kids who text and drve veer off the road all of the time. Do the math. She was distracted with SOMETHING and should be charged with something!

My wife and I visit every winter from Canada, and can't believe how dangerously these local yokels drive. I'm surprised more people haven't died.

If not for our tax dollars and seasonal spending they wouldn't have roads here at all. These redneck morons drive huge trucks, never signal, and are always on cell phones.

Dumbest people on earth.

"Local yokels". "redneck morons", "Dumbest people on earth"... If you don't like it STAY home. I am so sick and tired of hearing Canadians telling me about everything that is wrong with Florida. Stay home and freeze. Canadians come here with one pair of underwear and one 20 dollar bill and go back to Canada without changing either one.

Stay the F*** in Canada then. In case you drive through Tennessee on your way watch out for us redneck local yokels. We eat arrogant, judgemental morons like you for breakfast.

I agree that some teenager should not be driving, and yes its horrible what happen, I agree that she should be charged with something she gets to live to be 39 and that man does not. Where is the justices its ok to run a man over his life was less important then her paying attention. You claim she is a good person but the bible states you should not kill. I also agree that some people in Arcadia have too big of a vehicle that they should not be driving especial if you do not know how to drive or should not be driving at 5am because it results in you killing a poor innocent man.

With this logic why would someone hire a hitman to do away with someone, just have them run them over while walking a dog,jogging, bicycling,etc.

Luckily we're going back to Canada next weekend. These hicks get worse every year, hopefully they keep dying and it ends up with just us civilized northern people here.

We're the only ones who support businesses here anyway. The useless rednecks don't even pay income tax.

To Snowbird,
Going back to Canada next weekend? Why wait? Good riddance. Next year "Stay in Canada".
You hope the "hicks" die off? Hate to inform you but it'll be you old farts that die off first. Open up your eyes. We all hate you old foreigners. If you were happy with Canada, you'd stay there. No matter how many Canadian Flags you put up, THIS IS NOT CANADA. LEAVE. NODODY WILL MISS YOU!
