FHP continues search for witnesses of fatal hit-and-run crash near Dunnellon




State authorities sounded another call for witnesses to come forth and assist with investigations into a deadly hit-and-run crash outside of Dunnellon.


Florida Highway Patrol is also asking for help from a tow truck driver who likely saw the 9:20 p.m. collision from April 25 near West Dunnellon Road’s intersection with North Springvale Terrace.


Witnesses can call FHP at 813-558-1800. Tipsters can also remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward by contacting Citrus County Crime Stoppers at 888-269-8477.


According to FHP, which didn’t release the identities of those involved, a 29-year-old Crystal River man was lying perpendicular on West Dunnellon Road (County Road 488), when a 35-year-old Morriston, Levy County man driving an eastbound pickup truck struck him.


A second vehicle, a sedan, driving behind the truck also struck the man but didn’t stop afterward. Emergency responders pronounced the pedestrian dead at the crash scene.


Neither the truck’s driver or his three Morriston passengers, including 4- and 6-year-old children, were injured, according to FHP.
