Clearwater bicyclist dies in hit-and-run crash

CLEARWATER — A Clearwater woman died early Thursday after she was hit while bicycling across a road.

Narissaa Jo-Ann Robinson, 28, was biking along U.S. 19 near 298th Avenue N just before 1 a.m., the Florida Highway Patrol said. A white 2005 Hyundai ran into her and sped off.

While she lay in the road, a Mercedes ran over her. That driver, 49-year-old Palm Harbor resident Shereef Adel Moawad, does not face charges, the patrol said.

Law enforcement officials later found the Hyundai, but the driver was not with the car.

Robinson was taken to Mease Countryside Hospital, where she died.

An investigation continued Thursday.
