TEMPLE TERRACE, Fla. – The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal hit-and-run crash that left one person dead earlier this morning.

According to investigators, on Monday, just after 5 a.m., an unknown make and model vehicle traveled northbound on Morris Bridge Road in Temple Terrace.

It’s legally, and morally, the right thing to do.”
