A North Fort Myers man was fatally injured after he was struck by a vehicle while walking along Bayshore Road Monday afternoon.

Ted Knox, 55, was walking westbound on the pavement near the grass shoulder at about 3:49 p.m. when he was stuck by a pickup truck east of Old Bayshore Road.

The pickup, driven by Jerry Bryant, 89, of Punta Gorda, was traveling eastbound when the front right portion of the 2004 Dodge Ram collided with Knox before coming to a controlled stop on the south grass shoulder, according to a release issued by the Florida Highway Patrol.

Neither the driver nor his passenger, Ellis Brvant, 84, of Punta Gorda were injured.
