HUDSON — A 62-year-old woman was killed Wednesday night after walking into the path of a Pasco County Sheriff's Office vehicle while she crossed U.S. 19, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Regina C. Breslin, of Port Richey, was struck at about 9 p.m. as she walked across the highway near the intersection of Johnson Road, the Highway Patrol said. She entered the path of an unmarked 2015 Dodge Charger, troopers said.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The vehicle was being driven by Deputy Daniel Daugherty, 29, who was on duty at the time. He will be placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the Highway Patrol investigation, said sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll.

The Highway Patrol said no charges are pending against the deputy.

Daugherty is an Army veteran who starting working for the Sheriff's Office in 2013. His personnel record shows he has not been subject to any disciplinary actions.
