HAMILTON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — Troopers say a man is in critical condition after being hit by a pickup truck pulling a trailer on U.S. Highway 41 in Hamilton County.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, the crash happened Monday around 7:30 p.m. on U.S. Highway 41 just North of Berry Street in Jennings.

FHP says a Chevy pickup truck pulling a trailer was heading northbound on U.S. 41. Meanwhile, a man was sitting on a white line partially in the northbound lane and the side of the road as the truck was approaching.

The driver veered to try to avoid hitting the man but the right side of the trailer still ended up hitting him.

After the crash, the unidentified man was flown to UF Health Shands hospital in Gainesville in critical condition.

The driver did not suffer any injuries.
