Investigators claim that a 56-year-old woman driving a Mazda 3 was leaving the shopping center at the junction of Seminole Boulevard’s east side and 72nd Avenue North at the same time.
According to the deputies, she struck Sterbens as she crossed the shopping plaza exit and started to cross the northbound lanes of Seminole Blvd. from the east to the west.
After being transported to a nearby hospital, Sterbens was declared deceased. The driver of the Mazda was unharmed.

I have no words. Timothy Sterbens was a like a brother to us all that grew up in MOW. Summers were spent beaching, boating and sleep overs at your house with your sister, Candace. I am so thankful I got to see you when I was home. My love and prayers are with your family. This is heartbreaking news. We love you so much and will never forget the incredible memories made. Take your rest and know that you will NEVER be forgotten.
