HUDSON — Authorities are investigating a pedestrian crash in which a 24-year-old woman was killed near Stahl Drive Sunday night.

Lydia McMenemy, 24, of Port Richey, was walking on the shoulder next to the northbound lanes of U.S. 19 at about 7:20 p.m. when David L. Weis hit her with his Dodge truck, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.

Weis, 46, of Port Richey, was traveling north on the highway when he crossed onto the grassy shoulder where McMenemy was walking, troopers said. The FHP said she died at the scene and Weis was uninjured.

After the crash, Weis drove to a relative's house in Hudson, troopers said.
