Vehicle in fatal hit-run found in Spring Hill, FHP says

SPRING HILL -- Investigators have located the vehicle they say was used in a hit and run that killed a 67-year-old Spring Hill woman Monday morning.

The Florida Highway Patrol said they found the suspect vehicle, a white 1997 Chrysler, at a Spring Hill residence. Investigators seized it as evidence to build their case against an unidentified suspect, who they said is cooperating with them.

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.

Welch 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. Investigators asked any witnesses to notify Traffic Homicide Sgt. Lee Frye at (813) 631-4020.
