Brandon woman killed while crossing State Road 60

BRANDON — A Brandon woman was killed after being hit by a sport-utility vehicle Friday night on State Road 60 in Brandon, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Cheryl P. Minton, 41, was stepped into a westbound lane of State Road 60 while trying to cross the highway just west of Clock Tower Drive, the FHP said. Minton apparently didn't see the Nissan Xterra coming and was struck by driver Walter McWilliams III, 19, of Plant City, investigators said.

Minton was struck at 8:51 p.m. and died less than an hour later at Brandon Regional Hospital.

The crash remains under investigation.
