- Legacy Bright Street and Hampton Meadow Way
Vehicle: 2006 Dodge Ram 1500
Driver: Christian Madson
On August 22, 2017 at 7:27 a.m., Christian Madson was driving his 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 pick-up truck southbound on Legacy Bright Street when a pedestrian, Brianna Savage, darted from the sidewalk at the intersection of Hampton Meadow Way and into the path of the pick-up truck. Brianna, her mother, and a family friend were walking the dogs along the sidewalk when Brianna darted toward her house. Madson had looked to the right and saw the ladies walking the dog and did not see Brianna. He heard the impact with the truck and stopped to see what he had hit when he realized he had struck a little girl. Hillsborough County Fire Rescue responded and transported Brianna to St. Joseph’s Hospital-South where she died as a result of her injuries.
