Shortly before 5 a.m., BSO deputies responded to a vehicle versus a pedestrian crash in the 600 block of W. Sample Road in Deerfield Beach. Preliminary investigation shows that Yvon Isnor was driving a 2004 Honda Element westbound on Sample Road when his vehicle struck Pedro Escalante-Hernandez who was walking northbound across the roadway.
