BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – A Titusville woman remains in critical condition today after being struck by a hit-and-run driver early Sunday morning on State Road 405.
At 1:43 a.m. Sunday, Titusville Police responded to a call near Swan Lake Drive about a pedestrian being hit by a car.
The victim was flown by helicopter to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The preliminary investigation by traffic homicide investigators revealed a witness reported seeing a silver or gray car, similar to a Chevrolet Malibu, run over a woman who was already lying in the roadway.
