The Florida Highway Patrol is looking for the driver of a vehicle that struck and killed a 25-year-old Pasco County man early Sunday.
About 12:39 a.m., a blue sport utility vehicle was stopped facing south in the Zephyrhills Plaza parking lot, at State Road 54 and Coats Road, the highway patrol said. As Dane Cody Prater, of Dade City, approached the SUV, the vehicle moved and struck him, the patrol said. Prater died at the scene and the driver fled the area, troopers said.
Anyone with information in this case was asked to call the Florida Highway Patrol at (813) 631-4020.
