ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating an accident after a 24-year-old man was struck by a car Saturday afternoon.

Troopers said they were called to the intersection of Colonial Drive and Dean Road after a man ran out in front of a car and was struck.

Deputies said 24-year-old Michael Cahill was running from a man he had just stolen money from when he was struck by 26-year-old Brandon Montgomery who was driving westbound on Colonial Drive.

Troopers said Montgomery tried to swerve to avoid hitting Cahill, but made contact.

Cahill was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with serious injuries and charges are pending against him, troopers said.
