Felony Charges Laid Against Plant City Man Alleged Of Leaving Scene After Fatally Striking Pedestrian

A Plant City man is facing felony charges after authorities say he struck and fatally injured a pedestrian and left the scene afterwards.

Troopers of the Florida Highway Patrol say the 21-year-old man was driving westbound on S.R. 60 of an evening last week when he approached a man lying down in the roadway near the James L. Redman Parkway.

According to troopers, the defendant struck the man with his 2008 Infiniti G37, followed by another vehicle shortly after. The 43-year-old man's injuries were grievous, and he expired at the scene.

Though the second driver stopped to assess the damage, troopers say the defendant made no such attempt, opting to drive away from the scene. Authorities have confirmed that they will not charge the driver of the second vehicle with a crime.

Troopers caught up with the defendant over the weekend, arresting him at his home. He was subsequently booked into the Hillsborough County Jail on a count of leaving the scene of a fatal accident. The Michigan native was released later that day after posting a bond totaling $15,000.
