PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) - A woman is dead and her two small children are in serious condition after being hit by a car near Panama City.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the Ford pickup truck that hit the woman and children on Wednesday night left the scene.

Troopers say 33-year-old Jenifer L. Whitehead and the children were walking south along the shoulder of U.S. 231 around 8:27 p.m. Witnesses told troopers the pickup truck had been weaving back and forth in the southbound lanes before hitting the trio.

The victims were thrown into a ditch. Whitehead was pronounced dead at the scene. The children were taken to Bay Medical Hospital.

The names and ages of the children were not released.
