As the Camaro flipped the driver was ejected onto the roadway. The other vehicle took off without offering assistance to Williams.

Two other drivers stopped to help and witnessed two other vehicle strike Williams. They too failed to stop.

A few hours after the crash a 1997 GMC pick-up truck was found abandoned off Fletcher Ave. Investigators say the truck was the first vehicle struck by Williams Camaro. The driver of the vehicle is not known at this time.

One of the witnesses told investigators that one of the vehicles that struck the deceased after the initial crash was a white Sports Utility Vehicle. Troopers spent several hours at the scene gathering evidence and information.

If you have any information about this incident please contact the Florida Highway Patrol at 813-631-4020 or you can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers.
