SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - A pedestrian trying to cross Bee Ridge Road was hit and killed by an eastbound vehicle Sunday evening, the Florida Highway Patrol says.

Investigators say a sedan driven by a 24-year-old Sarasota woman was in the center lane of Bee Ridge, just east of the Beneva Road intersection shortly before 7 p.m. At the same time, a 69-year-old man from Venice was attempting to cross Bee Ridge at Maceachen Boulevard and apparently walked into the path of the sedan.

The man died at the scene, troopers say. The investigation is continuing.
