MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. — A 51-year-old female pedestrian was killed in crash that involved a blue Honda in Martin County on Friday night, the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) said.

The crash occurred on U.S. 1 northbound just north of County Line Road near the Jupiter Points Club and Marina in Tequesta.

All northbound lanes were closed due to the investigation.

The Martin County Sheriff's Office, Fire Rescue and Tequesta police responded but the investigation was turned over to FHP.
