PALM HARBOR — Authorities have released new information about the vehicle that struck a 58-year-old Clearwater woman in a fatal hit-and-run incident Tuesday night on U.S. 19.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the car that hit pedestrian Robin Anne Vallie may be a metallic gold or silver sedan. Originally, the FHP said the car was possibly a black Infiniti. That information was provided by a witness.
But upon further investigation, the agency was able to locate paint chips that may have come from the vehicle. The car may have heavy front-end damage and a broken windshield, the FHP said.
Vallie was pronounced dead at the scene. At about 8:45 p.m., she was trying to cross the southbound lanes of the road when she was hit.
The FHP asks anyone with information to call (813) 631-4020.
