Tampa police seek driver who struck pedestrian and drove off

TAMPA — Police are seeking the public’s help in locating the driver who fatally struck a pedestrian on Sunday night and then drove off.

The incident took place at 9:15 p.m. near the intersection of N Nebraska Avenue and E Linebaugh Avenue.

No details about how the crash took place were released by police. But the vehicle that officers are looking for was described as white, possibly a sport-utility vehicle, last seen driving north on N Nebraska Avenue.

The identity of the woman killed was not released because police have yet to notify her family.

Detectives believe there are witnesses who saw the crash who could help the investigation if they came forward. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Tampa Police Department at (813) 231-6130.
