3rd Woman Dead After Hit-and-Run

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — A third woman is dead following a Tampa Bay area hit-and-run crash.

Authorities say 25-year-old Grace Lashawn Collier died at a Tampa hospital Friday afternoon.

St. Petersburg police say a four-dour Chrysler 200 was driving the wrong way down a street early Thursday morning when it crashed into a Saturn with three female occupants.

Officials say two of the women — 23-year-old Briana Lequinda Campbell and 21-year-old Jamesia Chera Santoria Lang — remained in the burning car and were pronounced dead at the scene.

Collier, the Saturn’s driver, was found lying about 15 feet in front of the car. She was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where she died Friday.

Authorities are still looking for the Chrysler’s driver, who ran away from the scene Thursday morning.
