TAMPA (AP) — A 5-year-old Florida boy was struck and killed and his mother injured by a driver who failed to stop, authorities said Sunday.


The Hillsborough County Sheriff's office said in a news release that deputies are searching for a light-colored sedan following Saturday night's crash.


Officials said the mother and son were walking along a road about 9:30 p.m. when both were hit by the car that never stopped.


Deputies tried CPR on the boy before he was flown to Tampa General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The mother was also injured but is expected to survive.


The sheriff's office released surveillance photos of a light-colored sedan described as "of interest" that was in the area at the time.
