Troopers said no one witnessed the crash, but investigators believe the man, of Venezuela, was driving a 2006 Nissan Sentra and struck a 2013 Honda Accord that was parked at the complex.

The man got out of the Sentra, which drove forward and struck him before hitting the Accord again and two other vehicles, according to an FHP report.

The man, whose name has not been released, was taken to Osceola Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

No other details have been released.
