ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – The Florida Highway Patrol said troopers recovered the vehicle involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash that occurred Thursday.
Troopers said after following up on several tips, they discovered the vehicle at an undisclosed location in southern Orange County and towed it. Troopers are now working to recover surveillance video from nearby businesses in hopes of better identifying the driver.
Troopers said they are still looking to identify the driver of the vehicle who hit a group of three pedestrians as they were trying to help out another pedestrian who had been hit by a different driver.
The man who had been hit, Nostaky Exantus, 39, and 32-year-old Damion Bradford, one of the good Samaritans, were killed.
The two other good Samaritans were taken to a hospital.
Lazeya Rivera, 22, has already been arrested and charged with non-premeditated murder, driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license in connection with the first crash that killed Exantus.
She bonded out of jail Friday night.
The black Lexus sedan with a license plate LLTC87 is registered to a woman who lives in South Florida, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Troopers told News 6 they don't believe the registered owner was driving at the time of the crash; however, the car has never been reported stolen.
Troopers have been unable to talk to the registered owner of that car.
Anyone who has any information about who was driving the black Lexus involved in the deadly hit-and-run crash is asked to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
