Our law firm has undertaken representing the family and estate of a carnival worker struck and killed by a "hit and run" driver. The 2002 Crown Victoria believed to have been involved in the crash that took our client’s life has been located and the Florida police have hauled it away to begin collecting evidence. A trooper spotted the car abandoned on the side of Iron Bridge Road in Gadsden County.
However, there are still many questions unanswered for the family members in Virginia and up North. The tragic crash occurred at South Monroe and Paul Russell Road at about 9 o’clock on the night of Wednesday, October 28th. The decedent was in town with the carnival. According to the owner of Strates Shows, s job was to set up and run the roller coaster. Police report that our client was killed on his way back to the fairgrounds form the Winn Dixie grocery store.
According to the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, the shiny black sedan was reported stolen at about 12:30 Thursday morning, some three and a half hours after the accident. Now investigators must figure out who was behind the wheel and if that report of a stolen car is legitimate or an attempt to cover up a crime.
