A day after a car crashed into a day care center in Winter Park after being struck by an SUV, the alleged SUV driver turned himself in to authorities. The man is accused of fleeing the scene of the April 9 crash, which left a 4-year-old girl dead and over a dozen other children and an adult injured at the KinderCare facility.
The 28-year-old man was charged with leaving the scene of an accident "with death." Authorities say that he abandoned his Dodge Durango after the crash and then rented another SUV. The Durango was located by law enforcement within hours after the crash, which occurred around 3 p.m. A Florida Highway Patrol spokesman said that a telephone tip led them to the vehicle. She also said that the man already had been arrested multiple times on drug charges and also had gang affiliations. His bond is $100,000.
