Spring Hill Man Dies After Hit and Run Crash
HUDSON (PASCO) – According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 53-year-old Thomas Elliot Downing of Spring Hill, was riding his bicycle eastbound on Kitten Trail, near Dennis Drive, when he was struck by a pickup truck at that intersection. Downing died at the scene from injuries sustained in the crash.
The driver of the pickup truck, 40-year-old Melissa Sue Brandl, left the scene and did not report the accident to authorities. An anonymous tip led investigators to Brandl’s residence and officials say charges are pending. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor, according to officials.
