ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) — A woman trying to cross Pace Boulevard was killed after she was struck by a van, and after that a sedan. The van left the scene, and now, Florida Highway Patrol needs help finding the person behind the wheel.

On Wednesday, Oct. 27, at about 6:35 p.m., a van was traveling north on Pace Boulevard south of West Lee Street when it struck a woman crossing the roadway. A second car then struck the woman while she was lying in the roadway. The woman was in the northbound inside lane at the time of the collision.
