Bradenton, Florida -- Florida Highway Patrol troopers are searching for the driver of a vehicle wanted in the fatal hit and run crash of a pedestrian on Oct. 30.

Troopers say around 12:18 a.m., the person was driving a 2011-12 maroon Chevy Cruze north when they hit 42-year-old Erika Fortner as she was attempting to cross U.S. 41 at Montgomery Avenue. Fortner, of Venice, died as a result of the injuries she sustained in the crash.

Authorities say the Cruze should have damage to the driver's front panel or driver's door area and is missing the driver's outside rearview mirror.
