Friends and loved ones are grieving the death of Troy Edward Walter, a 46 year
old from Navarre, who died after stepping into the path of a car while trying to cross U.S. Highway 98. The Florida Highway Patrol says it happened just after midnight Sunday morning.
Jamaal Brewer, age 20 of Pensacola, and his passenger were in a 2004 Ford Explorer traveling east in the outside lane on U.S. Highway 98 and were approaching Wynnhaven Beach Road. Walter was attempting to cross 98 at the intersection of Wynnhaven Beach Road.
The front right corner of Brewer’s Explorer struck Walter, who died as a result of his injuries.
