According to CNN, the hit-and-run driver who police say struck and hit another car, sending it into a Winter Park day care center and killing a four-year-old girl, turned himself in on April 10.
A warrant for the man’s arrest had been made after the 28 year old drove a Dodge Durango that hit a car, sending it through a wall at a crowded daycare. One four-year-old girl died from injuries sustained in the accident and 13 other children were injured, as well as one adult. The driver fled the scene and ditched his SUV before renting a Mazda CX-5. The driver’s Dodge Durango was found abandoned a few hours after the crash.
The 28-year-old driver surrendered at Orange County jail, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The man had a troubled past, including gang ties as well as numerous drug arrests. The prosecutor revealed that he may face up to life in prison on the first-degree felony charge he faces in the KinderCare crash, due to a sentencing enhancement for habitual felony offenders.
My Child Was Seriously Injured By a Reckless Driver. What Can I Do?
All children have the right to live free of harm and experience all that life has to offer them. However, when a child sustains severe injuries caused by the negligent actions of another, the injury attorneys at Colson Hicks Eidson understand the emotional, physical and financial devastation that can occur after a serious accident.
In one case, attorney Roberto Martinez filed a personal injury suit on behalf of a 12 year old who died from electrocution. The inadequate electrical work by Eller Media employees at a Miami bus shelter caused the wrongful death of this young boy, and we obtained a $65 million verdict for his family.
