SAINT PETERSBURG, Fla. – Sunday will mark one year since a hit-and-run crash took 56-year-old Philip Anderson’s life and left his girlfriend, Tricia Best, injured.
St. Pete Police investigators are asking anyone, particularly two people who were in a nearby dark-colored SUV/van, to come forward with information.
The crash happened at 8:20 p.m. on May 2, 2020, while the pair were riding a motorcycle northbound on 34th Street North. As they were traveling, a silver sedan traveling in the same direction swiped their motorcycle, causing Anderson to lose control and crash in the 1500 block of 34th Street North.
The impact threw them off the motorcycle and onto the pavement. Both were taken to Bayfront Health. Best survived, but Anderson succumbed to his injuries.
Investigators tracked down the silver sedan that swiped the couple’s motorcycle, but need your help identifying the person or people who were inside the car at the time.
