The driver of a car that hit a concrete wall on the Courtney Campbell Parkway was then hit by a passing SUV, police said. Chantelle Barbose was listed in critical condition.

TAMPA — A sport utility vehicle ran over a woman's leg, then drove off, early Monday after the car she was driving crashed on the Courtney Campbell Parkway, authorities said.

Chantelle Barbose, 41, of Tampa was driving west on the causeway just before 5 a.m. in a 2001 Honda Civic when she hit a barrier wall, officials said.

The driver's door was pinned against the wall, police said. She crawled out a window as the car caught fire and was hit by a black SUV, which ran over her leg and did not stop, police said. Barbose suffered from burns in the fire.

She was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where she was in critical condition, police said.

An investigation remained underway.
