LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Two central Florida residents are behind bars after authorities say they fled the scene of a fatal car crash.
Lakeland Police say Michael Rosales ran a red light early Sunday morning crashing into 22-year-old William Pennock's truck. Pennock was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Witnesses said Rosales was driving without headlights and weaving on the road just before the crash. His girlfriend, Elizabeth Lauran Wallace, arrived after the crash, helped Rosales out of the truck and the two drove away.
Police say the pair have been charged with vehicle homicide and leaving the scene of a crash with death.
Additional charges may be filed.
