IMMOKALEE, Fla. — Just before 5 a.m. Saturday morning, Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) said a 21-year-old woman from Immokalee was hit and killed while walking in the westbound lane of State Road 82 (SR-82).

Then, FHP said the pedestrian was also struck by the sedan that was following behind, driven by a 27-year-old man from Immokalee.

While both drivers were uninjured, FHP said the pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.
