ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) — A dropped cell phone cost a visitor from New York her life.

The 29-year-old woman was parked on the shoulder of the Turnpike in Orlando around 8 p.m. Wednesday. When she reached down to grab her phone, which had fallen out of the car onto a southbound lane, she was struck and killed.

The driver didn’t stop.

The car involved in the crash may be a red Honda and it likely will have extensive front-end damage, according to the Florida Highway patrol.

The FHP has not released the name of the woman who died.
