Starke woman injured in Middleburg hit-and-run
A 65-year-old Starke woman was critically injured when she was hit by a vehicle, while walking across the parking lot of a Middleburg-area convenience store.
The Florida Highway Patrol said Patricia P. Hutchinson was struck by a 2003 Buick Rendezvous as the vehicle backed out of a parking space.
The driver sped away after the collision. However, several witnesses gave law-enforcement officers a description of the vehicle. Investigators found the Buick several hours later at a nearby residence. Charges are pending.
The Kangaroo Express, where the incident occurred around 9:45 Thursday night, is at the intersection of CR 215 and SR 21 (Blanding Boulevard), between Middleburg and Camp Blanding.
