By Staff | Jan 4, 2013

A Cape Coral man was killed Thursday night when he apparently crossed Veterans Parkway on foot and was struck by a westbound vehicle.

Richard Steven Aughinbaugh, 25, of 4224 S.E. 19th Place, died on scene.

At 11:14 p.m., Aughinbaugh attempted to travel south across Veterans Parkway East in the 500 block when he walked into the path of a 1994 Lincoln Town Car headed west, according to Cape police officials.

The driver, Luis D. Martinez Garcia, also of the Cape, was unable to see Aughinbaugh until the collision as he was wearing dark colored clothing.

Aughinbaugh died on scene due to the injuries he sustained.

Garcia was not injured in the accident, officials reported.

The investigation is ongoing.
