PINELLAS COUNTY, FL -

Florida Highway Patrol troopers located the driver who hit and killed a bicyclist in Clearwater and took off Thursday night.

According to the FHP report, Narissaa Jo-Ann Robinson, 28, was riding a bicycle at the intersection of US Highway 19 and 298th Avenue North in Clearwater just before 1:00 a.m., when a car hit her. 

Troopers said the driver of a white 2005 Hyundai four-door car did not stop and took off. While Robinson was on the road, she was hit again by a 2012 Mercedes. The driver of that vehicle, Shereef Adel Moawad of Palm Harbor, is not facing charges.

Authorities found the Hyundai, but the driver was not in it. Robinson was pronounced dead at Mease Countryside Hospital.

FHP troopers located the driver later. Authorities have not charged 24-year-old Christopher M. Jones of Tarpon Springs yet. The investigation continues.
