Two Highlands joggers hit by car, killed

- A tragic accident killed two joggers Monday evening.

They were hit by a car at the corner of Stryker Road and Taconic Road in Avon Park.

Investigators say the driver couldn't see Odali Labrada Rodriguez, 47, and Alexy Rivero Cespedes, 40.  They were not wearing lights or reflective gear.

They were also jogging in the same direction as the traffic so they couldn't see the car coming up behind them.
