Brooksville pedestrian struck and killed by car

BROOKSVILLE — A 62-year-old Brooksville man was struck and killed Saturday night as he crossed County Road 493, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Burl Batten apparently was checking his mail at 9425 Sunshine Grove Road about 9:45 p.m. when he was struck by a southbound 1999 Chevrolet Lumina driven by Paul Patrosky, 50, of Brooksville, the FHP said.

Patrosky swerved to avoid hitting the pedestrian, but Batten was struck by the right-front side of the car, FHP said. Batten died at the scene.

An investigation by FHP continues.

  3. Goodbye Tampa Bay Express, hello Tampa Bay Next; but toll lanes aren't going anywhere

    Transportation

    TAMPA — Tampa Bay Express is dead.

    But it's replacement — Tampa Bay Next — will likely include many of the same projects, including express toll lanes on the rebuilt Howard Frankland Bridge.

    The Florida Department of Transportation on Monday announced that it was renaming its Tampa Bay Express plan, also known as TBX. The plan will now be known as Tampa Bay Next, or TBN. DOT officials say there are still re-evaluating the most controversial aspect of the old TBX plan: spend $6 billion to add 90 miles of toll roads to bay area highways - Interstates 4,75 and 275 - that are currently free of tolls. But TBN will keep the plan to add express toll lanes to the rebuilt Howard Frankland Bridge. [Florida Department of Transportation]
