Troopers seek driver who struck, killed Hernando woman

SPRING HILL — The Florida Highway Patrol is looking for a driver who authorities say ran over and killed a 67-year-old Spring Hill woman Monday morning.

About 5 a.m., authorities said a vehicle they believe was traveling north on Barclay Avenue hit Nancy Welch as she was walking near the Irving Street intersection.

Welsh was found on the roadside a short time later and flown to Bayfront Medical Center, where authorities said she died from her injuries later Monday morning.

The vehicle fled after the crash, authorities said, adding that they collected debris including a black rearview mirror from the vehicle as evidence. Anyone with details regarding the crash or the driver should notify Traffic Homicide Sgt. Lee Frye at (813) 631-4020.

John Woodrow Cox can be reached at (352) 848-1432 or [email protected]
