ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Troopers are on the lookout for a driver responsible in the hit-and-run death of an 80-year-old woman in Orlando, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
In a report, FHP said the woman was riding a tricycle along West Lancaster Road Monday night when a vehicle struck her and then fled the scene.
The woman was taken to the hospital as a trauma alert and later died Wednesday, troopers said. FHP confirmed to News 6 the woman was Michelle Allen.
Investigators said they found a passenger side mirror believed to be from the vehicle involved in the hit-and-run.
According to FHP, the mirror is believed to have been part of a Black BMW, 3 series, between the model years of 2005 and 2011.
Troopers said the car should have damage to the passenger side mirror and urged mechanics or auto body shops that may have replaced or repaired such a part for a Black BMW to contact FHP.
Anyone with information about the hit-and-run is asked to contact FHP at 407-737-2213 or CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS.
