    FLORIDA Hillsborough County officials say a woman was hit and killed by a car after getting out of her own car to check on an owl she had accidentally hit.

    The sheriff's office says 68-year-old Jean Pearce was driving Sunday night in Keysville near Tampa when she hit an owl in the middle of the road. After pulling over to check on the bird, she was hit by another vehicle. Pearce died at the scene.

    No charges have been filed yet against the driver, who has not been identified. The accident is still being investigated.

    Meanwhile, animal control officers are checking on the condition of the owl.
