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.
