A woman was killed Wednesday night when she was run over by a car and a truck after lying down in the middle of U.S. 301 in Thonotosassa, authorities said.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers are not sure why 50-year-old Marilyn G. Lamonte decided to lie down in the roadway. She was lying perpendicular with the southbound lane, near the intersection of Walker Road, when a 2008 Saturn and a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado both ran over her while headed south at about 9:30 p.m., authorities said.
Lamonte died at the scene.
No one in either of the vehicles was injured. The Saturn has about $500 in damage from the collision, officials said. An investigation of the crash was ongoing.
