TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — One man has died and another is seriously injured after authorities say they were struck by two cars while lying in the middle of a southwest Florida road.

Florida Highway Patrol officials said Stacey Arthur Butcher, 42, of New Port Richey and Christopher Momier, 24, of Gibsonton, were lying on an unlit road Friday night wearing dark clothes. Two cars ran over the men. Authorities said both drivers stopped their cars.

Butcher died at the scene. Momier sustained serious injuries and was transported to Bayonet Point Medical Center.
