Pedestrian struck and killed on highway
NORTH MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- Authorities are investigating the death of a pedestrian who was struck multiple times on Interstate 95.
Florida Highway Patrol found the body of a man who was struck and killed on the northbound lanes of the highway, Thursday night, at around 9 p.m.
The driver who struck the pedestrian did not stop, and was then hit by multiple cars. "It's going to be up to the Traffic Homicide investigators to determine," said FHP sergeant John Carvalho. "One thing, as you can tell, the road is dark, pedestrians are not allowed on the highway anyway, and once you get hit, once you're on the ground, it's very hard for any motorist to see something and to avoid it."
Troopers have not been able to identify the man. They believe he was in his 40s or 50s.
Three northbound lanes of I-95 had to be shut down. FHP has classified the accident as a pedestrian struck.
