Hudson man hit and killed in Pasco crash


Pedestrian hit, killed crossing Little Road

A 49-year-old Hudson man was struck and killed by a car as he walked across a lane of traffic Saturday night, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The pedestrian, John R. Leach, was taken to Bayonet Point Hospital, where he died.

Leach was walking across the northbound lane of Little Road near Bolton Avenue, northeast of Hudson, troopers said, when about 9:45 p.m. he stepped into the path of a 1999 Honda CR-V driven by James L. Hutchins, 71, also of Hudson.

Hutchins' SUV sustained $2,000 in damages. Neither he nor his passenger were hurt.

The crash remains under investigation.
