Tragedy struck in Winter Park, Florida yesterday after a car was forced off the road and crashed into a day car center, resulting in the death of one child and at least a dozen more injuries.
The incident occurred yesterday afternoon at approximately 3:05 P.M. EDT when a silver Dodge Durango hit another car, which lost control and plowed into the KinderCare Learning Center.
The driver of the Durango, who has been identified as 28-year-old Robert Corchado, fled the scene after the crash. Authorities later found his vehicle, however, the suspect is still on the lose.
Robert has been described as "dangerous" and has previously been arrested in 2013 for reckless driving as well as a hit-and-run, and he is still awaiting trial for those charges. He was reportedly seen renting a Mazda CX-1 at Orlando International Airport.
15 people were hurt in the accident, 11 of which were children. 1 child was later pronounced dead at Arnold Palmer Hospital that evening.
Hopefully authorities are able to find Robert and make him pay for this terrible incident. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims.
