Pedestrian dies in Citrus County crash

LECANTO — A Citrus County man died after being hit by a car as he tried to walk across a highway Saturday night, according to authorities.

Robert Good, 57, of Lecanto was crossing State Road 44 at about 9 p.m. Saturday when he was hit by a 2005 Hyundai XG350L driven by Melissa Bancroft, 31, of Inverness, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The crash happened just east of the intersection of SR 44 and County Road 491, the patrol said. Bancroft was driving west on SR 44 and Good was headed north across the highway when he was hit, the patrol said.

Neither Bancroft nor her passenger — Brock Harding, 21, of Hernando in Citrus County — were injured.

The crash remained under investigation.
