Man killed in double hit-and-run in Orange Co.

- State troopers are searching for two drivers who hit and killed a man and took off in Orange County.

It happened at Universal Boulevard on Saturday night.

The victim has been identified at Rasheed Wiggins, 39.

Troopers say Wiggins was standing in the grassy median after a trip to Walgreens when a driver took a wide turn and hit him, tossing him into the roadway.

Troopers say a second driver then ran him over.

Both drivers left the scene.

A third driver, who troopers say was a taxi driver, hit Wiggins, but stayed on scene and is cooperating with investigators.

That driver told troopers he didn't see Wiggins' body in the roadway.

The two cars that left the site of the accident are described as a "newer, white passenger vehicle" and an "older white passenger vehicle."

Troopers say they don't have any leads on the drivers.

"Everyone at Darden is deeply saddened by this senseless tragedy. Rasheed was a valued team member who will be missed by all, especially those who worked closest with him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Kimberly, and all of his family and friends during this difficult time."

State troopers have confirmed that Wiggins was the husband of former Fox 35 reporter Kimberly Wiggins.
