TAMPA (WFLA) – The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office needs your help locating a driver involved in a possible fatal hit-and-run crash on Wilsky Boulevard in Tampa.

Deputies responded to the scene of a pedestrian-involved crash just before 1:30 a.m. at the intersection of Wilsky Boulevard and Drycreek Drive. The man involved in the accident was found unresponsive and was pronounced dead at the intersection.

An autopsy on the victim revealed his death was the result of blunt force trauma to the upper body. At this time, HCSO is investigating the death as a possible hit-and-run.
