An Irish tourist has been tragically killed in a hit-and-run, according to local news sources. Florida authorities have not clarified whether the man's family in Ireland has been informed of the car accident that killed the 36-year-old man in the early morning hours of Feb. 7. However, the driver deemed responsible is now in police custody awaiting trial.
Police are still unclear as to who was at fault in a two-car crash that claimed the life of a high school student on the afternoon of Jan. 24, according to local sources. Florida law enforcement officers are still investigating the car accident, which sent a further two teens to a local hospital. Highway Patrol estimates the accident took place at approximately 12:15 on U.S. Highway 29.
