A Ruskin man died trying to help others involved in two crashes in Hillsborough County Saturday night.
It happened on U.S. Highway 41 at Mirabay Boulevard in Apollo Beach shortly after 10 p.m.
Troopers say 32-year-old Chad Ries, of Ruskin, was hit and killed by a passing pickup truck.
Ries pulled over on the outside lane on U.S. 41. He was hit as he was getting out of his vehicle to help others involved in a car wreck.
Ries died at the scene. No one else was injured.
Troopers don't believe alcohol is a factor.
