PALMETTO, Fla. — Florida Highway Patrol troopers are investigating after they say a driver of a pickup truck ran over a man and dragged his body for more than a mile. Investigators say that man did not survive.
“We were sitting right there,” said Thomas Schurger.
Schurger was relaxing outside with a friend at the Terra Ceia RV Resort.
“We see this car pull up and stop and there was a truck right on his tailgate,” he said.
He says that’s when two drivers stopped suddenly on Bayshore Road near US 41 in Palmetto. FHP says that 32-year-old Bradley John Yost, of Palmetto, stopped his vehicle, got out and walked in the roadway.
