WALTON COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) — A 15-year-old is dead after falling from the back of a pickup and being hit by another vehicle in Walton County.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the boy from Pell City, Alabama was sitting in the truck bed of an F-150 traveling on US Highway 331 around 5:41 a.m. Tuesday. The F-150 was driven by 19-year-old Allion Hogan of Sylacauga, Alabama.

Troopers say the teen fell from the truck and onto the road where a second vehicle hit him. 

The driver of the second vehicle pulled over to the side of the roadway, but troopers say the F-150 continued to drive away. Troopers say Hogan, the driver of the F-150, did not know the teen had fallen off the back.
