The Florida Highway Patrol identified a pedestrian who was killed by a tractor trailer on the Palmetto Expressway Tuesday morning.

Norman Burrows, 57 parked his car near Miller Drive and then walked in front of the truck that was heading northbound on the expressway, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

It's unclear why Burrows walked into the northbound lanes.

You can see from the above picture that traffic was backed up all the way to Sunset Drive while FHP investigated.
