Initially they believed the unidentified woman might have been involved in that crash, which happened around 2:30 a.m. Friday on W. Military near Luke Drive.

"Deputies received multiple calls for a body lying in this roadway,” said Sgt. Elizabeth Gonzalez with BCSO. "The male had severe head injuries and trauma. It's still being investigated if he was hit by several vehicles or if it was just the one."

Deputies shut down a long stretch of W. Military where they found evidence. The roadway between Luke Drive and Highway 90 remained closed for several hours.

The sheriff’s office did not immediately release the name of the man who was killed.
