Woman arrested in crash that killed 78-year-old bicyclist

PLANT CITY — A woman was arrested Thursday, accused of leaving the scene of a traffic crash that killed a 78-year-old bicyclist.

Patricia Hancock, 64, was driving a Lincoln Town Car south on Dormany Road on April 17 when she failed to see Ivan Miller on a bicycle, deputies said. She struck him with the right front of her car and drove off, deputies said.

Hancock made a U-turn and went to her home on Dormany Loop, deputies said. She returned to the scene later with family members and appeared intoxicated, deputies said.

Ivan Miller, of Plant City, died at the scene.

Hancock was arrested on a warrant and faces a charge of leaving the scene of a crash involving death. She was booked into the Hillsborough County jail, and was released on $15,000 bail.
