Pedestrian dies after being hit by a car in Pasco Co.

Pasco County

ARIPEKA, Fla. (WFLA) – Pasco County investigators aren’t saying much about a fatal pedestrian crash in Aripeka.

Just before 3 Thursday afternoon, somebody hit and killed a person walking near Old Dixie Highway and Aripeka Road.

On a stretch of Aripeka Road, Deputies concentrated their efforts on a car pulled off to the side. Several sheriff cruisers lined the road.

Not far away, there was another scene.  There, deputies surrounded a P.T. Cruiser smashed into a power pole, with its windshield shattered on the passenger side.

A sheriff’s office spokesperson will only say it is investigating a fatal pedestrian accident and won’t say if the victim who was run over is male or female.

Investigators removed items from the P.T. cruiser. They lined-up brown paper bags, like ones typically used to store evidence.

8 On Your Side doesn’t know if the driver intentionally ran over the victim, or if this is an accident.

A sheriff’s office spokesperson said people involved in this crash are cooperating with investigators.

As it stands right now, News Channel 8 doesn’t know how or if the two crime scenes are connected.

No arrests have been made.
