Two pedestrians killed crossing U.S. 98

Two pedestrians from Tallahassee were struck and killed Saturday night while crossing U.S. 98 near Lanark Village.

According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, a 43-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman were walking north across the highway at the intersection near Arizona Street at about 10:10 p.m. when they were hit by a pickup truck being driven southwest on U.S. 98 by a 25-year-old Crawfordville woman.

Arizona Street is just to the northeast of the Ho-Hum RV Park.

Following the collision, the truck came to a final rest on US 98, blocking the southwest travel lane.

The Tallahassee man was pronounced dead on scene. The woman was transported to Weems Memorial Hospital and pronounced deceased on arrival. The driver sustained minor injuries.

The Florida Highway Patrol was assisted on scene by The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, Carrabelle Police Department, Carrabelle Volunteer Fire Department, and Franklin County EMS.
