The man came to be in the direct path of an SUV, troopers said, and the front of the vehicle struck him. He was taken to a hospital and was later pronounced dead, the report states.

FHP is still investigating. The SUV’s driver, a 27-year-old New Jersey man, was not injured in the crash and remained at the scene, troopers said.
