Central Florida dies after walking in front of deputy's patrol car
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a central Florida woman died after being hit by a deputy's patrol car.
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that 55-year-old Karen Kelly was walking across a four-lane street in Port St. Lucie Tuesday night when the deputy's marked cruiser hit her. According to Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers, relatives told investigators they didn't know why she was out on the road alone at night.
The deputy remains on duty, and no charges have been filed.
