According to the FHP, the next of kin have now been notified for the 37-year-old Keystone Heights man killed Friday morning while walking westbound on State Road 26 near the County Road 1469 intersection east of Orange Heights in eastern Alachua County. First responders pronounced the man dead on the scene.
