ORLANDO, Fla. – A Florida man suspected of involvement in a hit-and-run car crash that killed a 4-year-old girl and injured 14 people at an Orlando-area daycare centre surrendered to authorities on Thursday, police said.
Robert Corchado, 28, turned himself in at the Orange County Jail....
Corchado is believed to be the driver of a Dodge Durango SUV that triggered the crash by rear-ending another car as it slowed to turn into the day care entrance near Orlando.
The second car, a Toyota Solara, jumped the curb before going through the parking lot and into the front of the KinderCare daycare centre, striking several children and stopping at the back of the building.
