SPRING HILL — A 22-year-old Spring Hill woman was struck and killed by a passing vehicle while walking alongside Spring Hill Drive on Saturday night, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The woman was walking west about 10:45 p.m. along the outside lane of Spring Hill Drive near California Street when the driver of a sport utility vehicle tried to pass her but struck her with the right front corner of his vehicle, the Highway Patrol said.

The driver, a 34-year-old Spring Hill man, stopped the vehicle and was not injured.

The Highway Patrol did not release the name of the victim or the driver because of its interpretation of Marsy’s Law, a constitutional amendment passed by voters in 2018 that was meant to protect crime victims but deprives the public of information that had long been made available under Florida’s public records law.
