Woman hit and killed in road

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is investigating, after a woman was run over and killed on a neighborhood street Sunday morning.

It happened around 5 a.m. near the intersection of Tidewater Trail and Deauville Drive in Tampa.

"I saw a whole bunch of cops, blood everywhere, and a lady laid out underneath a car," said Allison Rivera. "It was very scary and confusing."

According to authorities, the victim, an adult black female, appeared to be lying in the road before she was hit.

Authorities had to use a crane to lift the vehicle off the woman's body.

Investigators said it's unclear why the woman was in the road or if she sustained any unrelated injuries before the crash. An examination of the body will find out if foul play is involved, according to authorities on scene.

The victim's name has not yet been released. The driver in the crash was not cited.
