WHEN: 3/24/2013 @ 7:35 p.m.

WHERE: West Waters Avenue & North Ola Avenue

VICTIM: Elizabeth Tristam Barford, 6/21/71, W/F, 4711 West Waters Avenue, Tampa

VEHICLE: 2003-2007 Ford F150, Extended cab, Dark, black rims w/silver 12" center hub cap

DETAILS: Gabriela Padilla was driving her white Jeep SUV west on Waters Avenue in the inside lane at the posted speed when a dark grey Ford F150, which was also west bound in the outside lane, made an erratic lane change in front of the Jeep. The driver of the Jeep swerved to avoid hitting the truck and crossed over the center line. She struck the left side of victim’s car as she travelling in the opposite direction. The Ford truck did not stop and was last seen westbound from the scene. Elizabeth Barford was pronounced deceased at the scene. Passengers in both vehicles were treated at St. Joseph's Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. It is unclear if the driver of the Ford truck knew he was the cause of the accident, but detectives would like to talk to that driver.
