A driver admits to police he was
texting on his phone when he struck a pedestrian in Panama City Beach.
It happened just after midnight Saturday on US Highway 98 about three-hundred
yards east of the intersection with state road 79.
Beach police say Nicholas Kilcoyne
was eastbound on 98 when his car hit a man who was crossing the road on foot. Kilcoyne
made a u-turn a few blocks away and went back to the scene.
The unidentified pedestrian was
taken to bay medical center and is in stable condition.
