Driver leaves scene of fatal hit-and-run on U.S. 301

Troopers are looking for a motorist who struck and killed a man as he lay on U.S. 301 early Tuesday.

A Florida Highway Patrol spokesman said Anthony J. Giffin, 24, of Apollo Beach was in the northbound lane just south of Stanford Road about 1:40 a.m. when he was struck by a vehicle traveling north.

The vehicle did not stop, but troopers found car parts at the scene they say match a white Chrysler PT Cruiser made between 2006 and 2009. The car would have damage to the front bumper cover and to one wheel's inner liner.

Anyone with information regarding the hit-and-run is asked to contact the Florida Highway Patrol at (813) 631-4020 or to call Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-873-8477.
