SAN ANTONIO -- Florida Highway Patrol troopers Monday released the identity of a pedestrian killed over the weekend on Interstate 75 near State Road 52.

A report stated that at the time of the accident, Joyce had exited a vehicle on the east shoulder of the interstate and was sitting in the inside lane.
