Lee County woman struck by SUV and killed

December 2, 2005

Lee County-  For the second time in two weeks, a pedestrian was hit by an SUV and killed on U. S. Highway South in Lee County.  But this time, the driver stopped.

Twenty-nine year-old Teresa Price was walking across the busy highway at the Century Road intersection around 7:30 last night when she was struck by a Ford Bronco. 

Investigators say she was crossing from Ealum Estates to the Citgo Store and was standing in the road when she was hit. 

The driver, 41-year old Kirk Wiley of Leesburg, told investigators he didn't see the woman. Troopers say he won't be charged.

A driver does face charges, though, in a previous fatality on U.S. 19 South. November 17th, 39-year old Stephen Collins of Albany was struck and killed on U.S. 19 South near Forrester Parkway.

The driver of the Ford Explorer who hit him did not stop and Collins' body wasn't found until eight hours later. Investigators have seized the vehicle in that hit and run, but haven't yet charged the woman they believe was driving it.
