NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. -- A pedestrian is dead after being struck by a semi tractor trailer late Wednesday night.

It happened around 11:30 p.m. north of the intersection of U.S. 1 and Pratt Siding Road.

Florida Highway Patrol reported the 27-year-old victim from Macclenny was walking in the middle of the right travel lane of U.S. 1 northbound when the semi struck them from behind.

The victim reportedly came to a final rest on the right shoulder of U.S. 1. Their identity has not been released because family members have not been notified.

The driver of the semi was not injured, according to troopers.

Investigators had all lanes of U.S. 1 closed at one point, but fully reopened the road to traffic around 5:30 a.m. Thursday.
