Victim hit by 3 vehicles on SR 50 in Hernando County was Sarasota man

HILL 'N DALE — Authorities have identified the pedestrian who was killed last week when he was hit by three vehicles on State Road 50.

The man was Jeffrey Dawson, 31, of Sarasota, the Florida Highway Patrol reported Thursday night.

Dawson was walking west on the south shoulder of SR 50 near Goodway Drive about 7:15 p.m. Oct. 28 when an eastbound Ford F-150 pickup truck drove off the side of the road, striking him.

Troopers said Dawson was thrown into the eastbound lanes of SR 50 while the F-150 continued without stopping.

Then two other vehicles, a 2004 Nissan Altima and a 2007 Ford Explorer, hit Dawson as he lay in the roadway.

Dawson died at the scene from his injuries.

The FHP has not released the name of the driver of the Ford F-150 but said Thursday that the person is a 43-year-old Brooksville resident.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to call Cpl. Scott Campbell at (352) 754-6767.
