Hit-and-Run Leaves Two Dead and One Critically Injured
Two people were killed and a third badly injured in a hit-and-run crash in St. Petersburg early Thursday morning.
When officers arrived on scene around three a.m., one vehicle was unoccupied, indicating the driver had fled on foot. The second vehicle was engulfed in flames with three people inside.
Emergency crews were able to rescue a woman and she was taken to Tampa General Hospital by helicopter with severe burns to her lower body and internal injuries.
She was last listed in critical condition.
The two other victims, also women, could not be rescued and were pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers later made contact with the registered owner of the unoccupied vehicle in an effort to determine who was behind the wheel.
The search continues for the hit-and-run driver.
