DADE CITY, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man driving drunk sped through a hit and run investigation, running over the detached legs of a victim and nearly striking two deputies.
Authorities were investigating the death of a 49-year-old woman who was walking along a grassy shoulder of a Dade City roadway Sunday morning before being struck by a hit-and-run driver.
Authorities found her torso on the shoulder and her legs in the roadway.
They say 23-year-old Thomas Krummen approached the scene at a high speed.
He ignored commands to stop, ran over the victims legs and fled.
Troopers chased him and used a maneuver with a patrol car to force him to stop, the highway patrol said.
