Original reports from the night of the incident described an unknown, low-profile recreation vehicle traveling westward on West Southern Street, near South Fairlane Terrace. Dina Towers, a 24 year old Homosassa resident, was out walking along the outer edge of the road, headed east in the westbound lane along West Southern Street.

Towers was struck by the right front of the vehicle, which then fled the scene. Towers was airlifted to Ocala Regional Hospital, where she died from her injuries.
