East Colonial Drive fatal hit and run
Early Wednesday morning, around 2:00 a.m., Nathan Francschi, a 15-year-old a resident of Orlando, was walking along Carpenter Road when he was hit and seriously injured by a vehicle. The driver of this vehicle did not call the authorities, and it is believed that they immediately fled the scene after hitting Francschi. The boy’s body was discovered on Carpenter Road, close to East Colonial Drive and Grissom Road, by another driver who was making his way home. This second driver immediately called 911. The emergency services rushed Francschi to Florida Hospital East, but due to the severity of his injuries, he died shortly after arriving at the hospital.
