DELTONA, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - A 21-year-old woman died Thursday about a week after she was struck by a car in the early-morning hours of April 7 in Deltona.
The victim, Kalley Leep of Deltona, was on Lake Helen-Osteen Road just north of Catalina Boulevard when a passing car came by just before 5:30 a.m. The driver, 61-year-old Renee Jennings, said the victim was in the middle of the road and she didn’t see her until it was too late.
A Sheriff’s Office helicopter airlifted Leep as a trauma alert to Central Florida Regional Hospital in Sanford. On Thursday, Leep was taken off life support.
The Sheriff’s Office is investigating.
