Late Wednesday evening in Sorrento, Florida, a young couple was involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident involving two separate vehicles.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers believe that excessive speed led to a horrific auto accident that killed three Illinois men. The accident occurred around 5:30 p.m. on the evening of March 13 on Wekiva River Road near State Road 46 in Sorrento. The accident killed the 46-year-old driver and his 36-year-old and 28-year-old passengers, all from Illinois.
