Police have identified the Parkland pedestrian who died after a vehicle hit him on Jan. 5.
According to detectives, Harvey Elliot Goldberg, 69, was walking northbound within a designated crosswalk at Heron Bay Boulevard and Northwest 76th Street in Parkland when he was struck by a 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Michael Clark, 49, of Parkland.
Clark was attempting to make a left turn at the intersection when the driver-side front fender of his vehicle hit Goldberg, causing him to fall onto the asphalt and strike his head, according to police.
Goldberg, a resident of The Estates in Heron Bay, was transported to Broward Health North by the Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department, where he was pronounced deceased.
According to police, Clark remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators. Excessive speed, driver impairment, mechanical malfunction, and environmental conditions are not considered to be contributing factors to the crash. However, they stated the investigation is ongoing.
Funeral and committal services for Goldberg will be held on Sunday, January 8, at IJ Morris at Star of David of the Palm Beaches and Star of David Cemetery of the Palm Beaches in Palm Beach Gardens.
