Search Continues for Hit and Run Driver in Orlando

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on October 24, 2014

Florida Highway Patrol troopers are on the lookout for a white Toyota Camry, which they say was involved in a hit-and-run incident early Thursday morning, October 23, 2014. Witnesses did not have a description of the driver of the vehicle, but said it was traveling at a high rate of speed. The incident happened in an Aldi parking lot on Colonial Drive, where the speed limit is five to ten miles per hour.

The victim of the hit-and-run was Karen Elghezousani, a forty-year old woman who was just finishing up her grocery shopping at the store. The woman was hit by the white Corolla and tumbled to the ground. Her groceries were scattered across the parking lot as witnesses came to the woman’s aid.

Nicole Scott helped Elghezousani after the accident, and stayed with her until paramedics arrived. The victim did not suffer any life-threatening injuries, but she is said to be suffering from memory loss. Doctors have not said it is full-blown amnesia, but she is not able to recollect some things. Her arm may be broken as well.

Friends say that the Elghezousani is a kind woman who is always looking out for others. Now, police are asking that the public look out for her, and try to call in information about the hit-and-run. Witnesses say that there was another vehicle on the scene, a grey Nissan, which appeared to chase after the Corolla, presumably to get a license plate number or apprehend the assailant. They hope that the drive of that Nissan will come forward with other information, as it never came back later.

Other witnesses say that the grey Nissan was chasing the Corolla BEFORE the hit-and-run, which might explain why the vehicle never returned. The two cars may have been in a high-speed chase through the parking lot, which caused the hit and run.

Anyone with information about the Nissan, the Corolla, or other information pertinent to this investigation are encouraged to call the Florida Highway Patrol.
