Roman trailed behind his sister as they crossed Webber Street and Nodosa Drive. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a Chevy Silverado was stopped at the stop sign on Nodosa Drive. The driver, Lamb, saw the young girl go by, but not Roman, according to reports from the Florida Highway Patrol.
As Roman was crossing, Lamb drove her pickup past the stop sign, striking the boy and dragging him approximately 15 feet, FHP reported. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Roman's death prompted the Sarasota County Commission to examine its role in school safety.
Lamb will have her driver's license suspended for six months and must pay about $2,000 in fines and court costs, according to court records. She must also attend 12 hours of traffic school.
Lamb has a history of driving citations. Since 2011, she’s been issued separate citations for careless driving, running a stop sign and a red light. She’s also been cited for driving over the speed limit and driving on a suspended license.
