“We do know at this time the female driver was going eastbound, she was in the process of changing lanes when the pedestrian was not in a marked crosswalk when the collision occurred,” said Tara Crescenzi, with the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said sometime after, the driver called in the crash herself, but it’s not clear if she stayed in the area.
