People living near US-92 and Falkenburg Road are on edge after a man was hit and killed on the roadway over the weekend. 



Troopers said Tony Terry was walking on US-92 early Saturday morning when a vehicle hit and killed him.  The vehicle left the scene of the crash. Another vehicle hit his body a short while later and that driver called police.  

"What type of person could you be to just leave, you hit someone you killed them," said family member Susan Shields.

Shields is starting a petition to get more lights on the section of roadway where her nephew was killed.  

"The fact that he was hit twice kind of proves that you can see nothing, there's no lighting," said Shields.

Shields is especially upset, because her two brothers were also hit while walking on US-92.

"Both my brothers were walking they hit them both, killed my one brother, that driver also took off," said Shields.

Some neighbors agree that more lighting should be placed on US-92.  Debbie Capron's nephew was on the roadway when he was hit by a vehicle.

"The driver took off, he was in a coma for three months," said Capron.

FDOT representatives said the agency may conduct a lightning study on the stretch of road.

Troopers said nobody has been arrested in the most recent crash.  There is a GoFundMe page setup in Terry's memory.
