A Brooksville woman died Sunday night after a pickup struck her as she crossed U.S. Highway 19, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Sheryl Ann Hathaway, 60, tried to cross the highway from the east side just north of the Beverly Court intersection and stepped in front of a Dodge Ram pickup.
The truck, driven by Lester Fisher, 81, of New Port Richey, hit Hathaway and killed her, according to a crash report.
Authorities were unsure Monday as to why she crossed the road, said FHP spokesman Sgt. Steve Gaskins.
