Indian River County Commissioner Laura Moss is expected to make a full recovery after she was struck by a pickup truck Monday morning at approximately 8:30 a.m. in Vero Beach.
“She has an injury to the back of her head. She couldn’t remember her name,” Vero Beach Police Master Officer Darrell Rivers told Sebastian Daily.
Moss, 69, was crossing a street on Cardinal Drive when she was struck by a truck traveling at approximately 10 mph, Rivers said.
“They drove her down to Lawnwood in Ft Pierce out of caution. They’re going to keep her overnight for observation. She’s expected to make a full recovery,” Rivers added.
Before running as a county commissioner, Moss served as Mayor of Vero Beach.
