A 57-year-old Jacksonville man died late Wednesday when hit by a car while crossing a Mayport street.

The Florida Highway Patrol identified the victim in the 9:30 p.m. accident as Glen Keith Waddle and the driver as Devin Roy Mathews, 25.

An accident report said Mathews was driving his Nissan Maxima south on Mayport Road in the center lane approaching Levy Road when he struck Waddle crossing from east to west in the marked crosswalk.

Waddle was crossing against the pedestrian crosswalk symbol, the report said. Mathews was unable to see him due to his dark clothing.

The Highway Patrol is continuing its investigation.

"Waddle was crossing against

"Waddle was crossing against the pedestrian crosswalk symbol, the report said."

What on earth does "crossing against the pedestrian crosswalk symbol" mean?

If "symbol" was "signal" it would mean that the deceased walked across the road against the traffic light. T-U at its best premium content professional journalism best.

But it doesn't talk about how he was still alive for at least 20 mins ab the Atlantic beach police let him stay face down on the road with his pants down to his ankles. A good friend of mine was the second car that almost hit him an stoped ten feet away from him an saw everything an tried to give the man a towel an the police told her to get away .on top of that it took the ambulance a good ten to twelve min to get there an he was still breathing a no one tryed to give him cpr or anything.
