TPD narrows of description of SUV of hit-and-run death of 4-year-old

Tampa police have narrowed the description of the vehicle that was involved in Sunday night's death of a four-year-old boy.
 
Marterrance Albury was struck in the southbound lanes of North Florida Avenue about 9:45 p.m. Sunday just north of 109th Avenue.
 
The boy later died at St. Joseph's Hospital.
 
Two surveillance videos show the SUV investigators believe was involved.
 
It's described as a 1997 - 2002 Ford Expedition, dark color with an after-market front grill and tinted windows.
 
Investigators were not sure if it was a hit-and-run or if the driver did not realize the child had been struck.
 
The child's 36-year-old mother, Johntea Williams, went out with a friend Sunday night and left her 17-year-old son in charge of Marterrance.  
 
At some point, the teen lost track of his little brother and ended up approaching police on scene and told them he could not find his little brother.
 
Anyone with information about  the Ford Expedition in question, call Crime Stoppers at 800-873-TIPS or the Tampa Police Department at 813-231-6130.
