FHP troopers searching for suspect in deadly Kissimmee hit-and-run crash

The Florida Highway Patrol is asking for the public’s help following a hit-and-run crash that happened on Feb. 12. 

According to reports, a driver heading eastbound on Poinciana Blvd. near the intersection with State Road 535 veered off the road and onto the shoulder, hitting a bicyclist at 9:35 in the evening.
The 48-year-old bicyclist from Kissimmee died of his injuries on Feb. 23.

FHP released a new video of the scene showing a silver Hyundai Elantra driver getting out, running back, then returning to his vehicle and driving off. Troopers believe this is the suspected driver; they say the front of the car should have visible damage to the front right end.


FOX35’s Kelsie Cairns spoke to someone pumping gas at a station overlooking the intersection near where the crash happened. Angel Figueroa works at a bank nearby.

"Hopefully, we can do something. Hopefully, we can change something in this area," he said. "I want to make it home to my family. I know everyone else wants to do the same thing too."
