On Tuesday Dec 11 at 07:40 Crews from City Of Bradenton FD E-32 & MCEMS were dispatched to a OT Small Pickup at the corner of 43rd St W/Sandpoint Dr. Upon arrival Crews found a 16y/o female ejected out the side of the truck who died of massive head injuries. Her boyfriend (the driver) refused any treatment or transport. Both occupants were on the way to a local high school at the time. Early reports indicate a elderly female who was exiting a Apt Complex, heading Eastbound, on her way to Church, entered the intersection and was briefly distracted by the morning sun and stopped briefly after she was on 43rd St. W. The Southbound pickup was unable to stop and tried driving around the elderly female which caused the pickup to overturn several times. City of Bradenton Police Accident Investigation Unit is investigating.
