The Florida Highway Patrol is reporting that a Northwest Florida man was injured following a hit-and-run incident involving a tractor-trailer Tuesday night.
According to a FHP news release, Stephen Martin, 59, of Freeport, was among two pedestrians walking along State Road 20 east of Linda Lane in Walton County at the time of the 9 p.m. incident.
FHP noted that Martin may have stepped in the path of the unknown tractor-trailer as it traveled by causing the semi’s trailer to hit the left side of his extremities.
