Tampa Man Charged After Allegedly Slaying Pedestrian In Hit-And-Run Accident

A Tampa man is facing felony charges related to a hit-and-run accident that took the life of a pedestrian last year.

Police say the 22-year-old man was driving a white Chevy SUV southbound on N Nebraska Avenue in the early-morning hours of December 1 when he encountered a 40-year-old woman near E 120th Avenue.

Per investigators, the woman's progress took her into the SUV's path, yielding an encounter that seriously injured her. She was taken by ambulance to hospital, but the injuries were too great. She subsequently expired while in hospital.

Police say the defendant did not stay behind to assess the damage, choosing instead to flee the scene of the accident. They have released little further information on the incident aside from announcing his arrest last week at an apartment complex in Tampa.

The Florida native was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail on March 10. He's charged with leaving the scene of a crash with death involving a vulnerable road user, and driving with a suspended or revoked license with death or serious bodily injury. He remains in custody in lieu of a bond of $100,000.
