Pedestrian hit-and-run in Lakeland

LAKELAND, FLA. -- Around 6:40 a.m. on Saturday, August 9, 2014, Polk County Sheriff's Office received a call from a motorist who saw an adult white female laying on the south side of the roadway of eastbound Clubhouse Road in Lakeland, near Tillery Road.

Polk County Sheriff's Office arrived and located the victim, 20-year-old Jillian Lynn Braddock, who was deceased and appeared to have been there for at least a few hours.

We believe she recently moved into the area from Georgia.

The car that struck this victim is likely a 2007-2012 model Nissan car—possibly an Altima—that will have front-end and mirror damage on the passenger side. The car would have been traveling eastbound on Clubhouse when it struck her.
