Pedestrian dies after three cars hit him on SR 50

BROOKSVILLE — A 31-year-old pedestrian is dead after he was hit by three cars on State Road 50.

At about 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, the man was walking west on the south shoulder of SR 50 near Goodway Drive when an eastbound Ford F-150 drove off the side of the road, hitting the man, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said the pedestrian was thrown onto the eastbound lanes of SR 50 while the F-150 continued east without stopping.

A 2004 Nissan Altima driven by 36-year-old April S. Sasser of Brooksville, and a 2007 Ford Explorer driven by 53-year-old Gale B. Carlson of Webster, hit the pedestrian again, troopers said.

The pedestrian died at the scene. His name has not yet been released.

Troopers have not released the first driver's identity, either, pending further investigation.

Troopers ask any witnesses to the crash to call Cpl. Scott Campbell at (352)754-6767.
