ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – A driver fled from a crash Saturday in Orlo Vista that involved another car and two pedestrians — a 29-year-old Orlando woman who suffered fatal injuries and a boy now in critical condition — according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred at 8:50 p.m. on W. Colonial Drive near Powers Drive as the woman and the child crossed Colonial in a southerly direction outside of a crosswalk, troopers said.

The woman and child, whose age has not been released by the FHP, were initially struck in the inside eastbound travel lane by a sedan being driven by a 39-year-old Orlando man when they walked into its path, according to FHP. After this, a second vehicle described only as a dark-color sedan reportedly struck the woman and fled from the scene eastbound on Colonial Drive, troopers said.
