A landscaper is dead after he was struck by an SUV on SR 82 near Bell Boulevard in Lehigh Acres Saturday afternoon.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the worker that was hit is an employee for a landscaping company and was assisting with laying down sod in the construction zone.
Troopers said that a 37-year-old Cape Coral man was driving the SUV east in the inside lane of SR 82, east of Bell Boulevard. The landscaper was standing along the dashed lane divider between the outside and inside lane of eastbound SR 82.
FHP said the outside lane of eastbound SR 82 was closed off by construction barrels because it was an active construction zone.
The eastbound lanes of SR 82 were blocked off in the area, according to troopers. FHP is still investigating the crash.
