Deputies hunt for driver who left scene of Brandon fatality

A Brandon resident was killed Friday night after being hit by two vehicles on Lakewood Drive, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies are also looking for the second vehicle's driver, who left after hitting 29-year-old Antoine V. Brown. Investigators said Brown, of 1907 Lake Chapman Drive, ran east across Lakewood Drive and into the path of a southbound Nissan Xterra sport utility vehicle about 10:35 p.m. Brown was then hit by another driver who was heading south.

The second driver was described by witnesses as a woman about 40 to 45 years old, 5-feet-5 and 140 pounds. She was driving a dark sedan, possibly a Honda, and wearing a white shirt and "hospital scrub" pants, the Sheriff's Office said.

The SUV driver, William H. Williams, 45, of Valrico, was going about 35 mph when Brown ran into his path, deputies said.

Anyone with information about the other vehicle or driver can reach the Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
