Car involved in deadly hit-and-run accident found, FHP reports

Florida Highway Patrol says the driver hit a 67-year-old woman who died from her injuries.

TOWN 'N' COUNTRY, Fla. — Authorities are looking for the person who was behind the wheel during a deadly hit-and-run crash over the weekend in Town 'N' Country.

Florida Highway Patrol says at 8:24 p.m. on Saturday, a gray sedan was driving eastbound on State Road 580 near Reflections Club Drive. 

The car would hit a 67-year-old woman who was walking on the side of the road before leaving the area, according to FHP.

The woman was taken to the hospital but eventually died from her injuries. She was later identified as Yinshu Jin.

Tuesday, the woman's sister Yinnu Jin spoke with 10 Tampa Bay and said she's asking for the person responsible for her sister's death to come forward.

"You did it," Yin said before she continued to explain that driving off after an accident is not ok. "[If] you watching the news... come out. Talk to police."

Wednesday, Florida troopers said they recovered the grey car involved in the deadly accident. The car was found at a home in the 9300 block of Memorial Highway, not far from where the crash originally occurred. 

Anyone with information is asked to call FHP at 813-558-1800.
