Suspect Surrenders After FL Daycare Hit-and-Run That Killed Child
A manhunt near Orlando is now over after a deadly hit-and-run that killed a child inside a daycare center Wednesday. Martha MacCallum reported this morning that Robert Corchado, 28, has surrendered to authorities.
Police announced a $5,000 reward in their search for Corchado yesterday. Corchado is said to have fled the scene after slamming his Dodge Durango into a Toyota Solara. The Solara then went out of control, crashing into a KinderCare Learning Center in Winter Park.
Police believe yesterday's public press conference (video above) and the reward made a big difference in convincing Corchado to surrender.
The crash killed four-year-old Lily Quintus. Fourteen other people were injured, including one person who was listed in critical condition as of Thursday. Corchado then sped away, and the Durango was found at a nearby home.
According to a local report, Corchado was arrested in 2013 on charges of careless driving, hit-and-run and leaving the scene of property damage. He is currently awaiting trial on those charges.
