Hit-and-run victim identified as Tarpon Springs woman

CLEARWATER — Authorities have identified a pedestrian killed in a hit-and-run early Saturday as Karen Elane Boggs, 41, of Tarpon Springs.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Boggs was walking westbound on Ulmerton Road in the inside lane, just east of Stoneybrook Drive, about 3 a.m. when she was struck by a vehicle.

The driver did not stop. Boggs was pronounced dead at the scene.

The vehicle, which would have damage to the front end, may be a red truck with a "soccer mom" tag on the front, the FHP said.

An investigation is ongoing. The FHP asks anyone with information to call (813) 631-4020 or toll-free at 1-800-873-8477.
