Tampa suspect arrested in fatal hit-and-run

TAMPA — A man wanted in Saturday's hit-and-run crash that killed a Brandon pedestrian turned himself in Monday night, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Robert Allan Winsor, 24, of Tampa faces charges of leaving the scene of an accident with death and tampering with evidence, the Sheriff's Office said.

Investigators said he is the driver who struck Shelley Grimes, 59, late Saturday as she walked across Providence Road at Providence Ridge Boulevard. Her husband said she was out walking the family dog when she was hit by what authorities described as a Chrysler 300 with at least three people inside.

Deputies received a tip that led them to the damaged car at an apartment complex near New Tampa. Deputies determined during the investigation he was the driver at the time of the crash and a warrant was issued for his arrest. He turned himself in at the Orient Road Jail.
