A 71-year-old man was killed early Monday when he was hit by a car as he tried to cross State Road 60.
John H. Schumaker of Mulberry was walking along State Road 60 just west of the Polk County line about 7 a.m. when he was struck by a 1987 Toyota, Florida Highway Patrol officials said. Schumaker was dead at the scene.
Authorities said the Toyota was driven by Joe Christopher Svensden, 19, of Lakeland. Svensden was charged with driving with a restricted license.
