The report below indicates that Albert Campbell, the driver of the RUNAWAY TOYOTA SOLARA that rammed the KinderCare building was accelerating the entire time.

That report fails to address why FHP Officers were measuring skid marks.

This is the second high profile case in which a TOYOTA was impacted and the driver was unable to stop the vehicle.

Deadly KinderCare crash trial continues Friday

Late Friday afternoon the state rested its case against the man accused of causing a deadly day care crash. That crash killed a four-year-old girl.

Prosecutors tried to paint a picture for the jury Friday for why Robert Corchado, 29, may not have wanted to stop after allegedly rear-ending another car, which was then propelled through a Winter Park KinderCare day care facility, killing Lily Quintus and injuring 11 others.

One by one crime scene experts said the evidence collected back in April showed Corchado knew he had been in an accident and should have known there were injuries.

To place Corchado as the driver of the Dodge SUV that crashed into a Toyota Solara that careened into the day care, experts first set out to prove the two vehicles made contact at some point.

Laura Marano, a senior crime lab analyst for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement told jurors, "I was asked to compare any paint found to the paint on the front bumper of the Dodge Durango."
She went on to testify the paint did match. Then other experts testified that DNA collected from the steering wheel of the SUV matched Corchado.

Cell phone records show Corchado's cell phone was making calls from the area near the time of the accident. And then there was the vehicle itself, found outside of one of Corchado's friends' homes.

Investigators testified they found a backpack full of drugs and items with Corchado's fingerprints on it.

"The first bag is an envelope containing a white substance removed from Bag D," said Vanessa Nylander, of the Orange County Sheriff's Office. "The second bag is 34 baggies containing white substance."

The defense contends that it was more than an hour and a half after the accident that the Durango was located and there was no proof the drugs were in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

Corchado's attorney told the court that Corchado will decide over the weekend if he will testify for his own defense.
