Second Man This Week Killed While Lying in Roadway, Search for Vehicle Underway

DADE CITY –  One week after a man was struck and killed while lying in a Citrus County roadway, a Zephyrhills man lost his life after witnesses say he was lying on Blanton Road, just before being struck by at least one vehicle.

According to Dade City Police, 53-year-old Thomas Michael Burdeshaw of Dade City was lying on Blanton Road near Mitchell Street around 1:45 a.m. this morning when he was struck and killed. A witness turned around to check on Burdeshaw where he discovered that the position of his body had changed and had suffered severe trauma.

Several vehicles passed through the area during that time, but it is unknown who struck Burdeshaw.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding Burdeshaw’s death to contact Detective George Richardson at 352-521-1493.

  • “Laying in the roadway” and being hit by a vehicle… Whatever next? Taking a shower and getting wet?
    Should the powers that be not be investigating what is actually happening here?

  • It is possible that this may be the new suicide tactic. Take some sleeping pills, go lie in the middle of a road, fall asleep and bang, didn’t feel a thing.

    • I’m not sure about these people laying on roads, being struck by cars, or vehicles hitting bicyclers, pedestrians, and just leaving them to die! What puzzles me more, is, how do we have all these children 2 years and younger, wandering off, and no one notice they are gone? How do your babies drown, and you don’t know they not inside with you. Are parents these days that careless? I remember a few years ago here in Florida the rash of infant deaths. After investigating, it was found parents put their babies in freezers and we’re dying of pneumonia. Those families had life insurance claims….maybe these drownings need investigated. HOW DO YOU LOSE SIGHT OF YOUR BABIES!!!

    • Surfadude, do you know how to use periods after a sentence. I had to get my puffer out after reading your comment, lol.

      • Improving your grammar IAMME, good job! Now there should be a “?” after ‘sentence’ rather than a period.

  • What on earth is going on with so many men lying in the middle of the road, and being run over, is it alcohol or drugs, it’s one or the other, or maybe a combination of both?
