SANFORD — A Good Samaritan who stopped to help a stranded motorist was struck and killed by a car along a busy highway in central Florida. The stranded motorist was also killed.

Florida Highway Patrol officials said 26-year-old Orlando resident Nicole Azrig’s car struck a guardrail early Saturday along Interstate 4. Forty-seven year-old Robert Webb of Kissimmee stopped to help her. Both were standing in the emergency lane on the highway when driver Jescycka Cater of Orlando swerved to try to avoid the crash and veered into the emergency lane. Both victims died at the scene.

FHP officials said the area is not lit and that the lights on Azrig’s car were off after the accident.
