ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Police in Florida are searching for a man suspected of driving a vehicle involved in a fiery hit-and-run crash that killed three Tampa Bay-area women.

St. Petersburg Police spokesman Mike Puetz said Saturday that 27-year-old Marquice Lamonz Anderson is being sought on warrants that include charges of vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of an accident involving death, driving on a suspended license and violation of probation.

Authorities say Anderson was driving a four-door Chrysler 200 the wrong way down a street early Thursday morning when it crashed into a Saturn vehicle with three female occupants.

Two of the women — 23-year-old Briana Lequinda Campbell and 21-year-old Jamesia Chera Santoria Lang — remained in the burning car and were pronounced dead at the scene. A third, 25-year-old Grace Lashawn Collie, died at a Tampa hospital Friday.

Anderson has numerous past arrests on drug-related charges and was on probation at the time of the accident.

Efforts by police to locate him have been unsuccessful, and they believe he is hiding and knows officers are looking for him.

A cash reward is being offered for information that leads to his arrest.
