UPDATE: Lexus Involved in Orange County Hit-and-Run Discovered

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on July 15, 2019

Recently, we reported on a hit-and-run collision that took place within Orange County and was partially responsible for the death of two pedestrians and the injury of two others. In the initial report, we described how a collision between a Dodge Durango and a pedestrian early on the morning of July 4th had resulted in three additional pedestrians rushing to assist the fatally injured person.

It was while these three people were attempting to help that a second car, a black Lexus, approached the scene and, reportedly without slowing down, struck all three of the good samaritans attempting to help the first person. As a result of this crash, one of the three individuals was killed and the other two were taken to a hospital in critical condition.

Members of the Florida Highway Patrol announced on July 6th that they had managed to locate the Lexus involved in the crash. The official report stated that the discovery of the car happened after several tips reached the FHP pointing them in the right direction. Unfortunately, the driver of this vehicle was not located with the abandoned car. It is believed that the person to whom the vehicle is registered was not the individual driving it at the time of the crash, but the reports failed to state just why the FHP have adopted this stance. The car was not reported as stolen, but the reports also failed to state whether or not the owner of the Lexus has provided police with any information regarding the individual who was driving it at the time of the incident.

Police are currently examining surveillance video that was captured by business located near to the area where the car was abandoned in the hopes that the footage will allow them to identify the driver of the Lexus. When/if this person is identified, it will be another challenge for officers to locate them. As is often the case in circumstances like these, the officers are depending upon the aid and tips of people who may know the person involved or have some information pertaining to their whereabouts.
