At least eight are reported to be injured in a accident that involves a car crashing into a daycare in Florida. A manhunt is underway for the man who crashed a Dodge SUV into a second car, forcing the vehicle into a packed Florida day care center, killing one child and injuring at least 11 other children.
Robert Corchado, 26, who has at least eight arrests since 2000, fled the scene after the 3:11 p.m. Wednesday crash on a busy Winter Park road. The silver Dodge Durango was found parked in a driveway some 1.5 miles away — but Corchado was nowhere to be found.
The vehicle took off from the scene, while responding authorities transported 13 people, including at least 12 children, to five area hospitals. Two were treated on scene. There were at least 50 children inside the day care at the time of the crash in what was a “very intense scene, very severe scene.
Police located the car after 5 p.m. and the Dodge in question was roped off with yellow crime tape while officers were interviewing the home’s occupants at Orange Ave. and Walnut Ave. in Winter Park. Corchado served three years in prison for a cocaine trafficking conviction, the Orlando Sentinel reported. He’d also been arrested in December and was out on bail on charges of heroin and cocaine posession with intent to sell and leaving the scene of a crash.
