KISSIMMEE, Fla. - A 58-year-old woman was hit and killed while looking for her wallet in Osceola County shortly after she'd been involved in a crash, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Margarita Contreras, of Boca Raton, was hit by a northbound passenger vehicle on Orange Blossom Trail south of the Osceola Parkway around 1:15 a.m.
The driver did not stop at the scene, troopers said.
Contreras had been in an accident just prior to being hit. She had pulled her car into a nearby parking lot and went back out in the roadway because she believed she’d dropped her wallet, troopers said.
Troopers described the car that hit her as a tan or gold passenger vehicle with damage to the front.
Anyone with information regarding the crash is urged to call the Florida Highway Patrol.
