A Lantana man who was seriously injured after being hit by a vehicle last year has passed away.
Eddie Little, 67, succumbed on Friday to complications of a traumatic brain injury and stroke which occurred after he was struck by a vehicle on the morning of Feb. 27, 2009, at Bonham Parkway and Lantana Trail while walking his dog.
