Florida Highway Patrol Troopers are looking for a black Mazda following a fatal traffic accident at a Kinder Care Center in east Orlando Wednesday. FHP spokesperson Trooper Wanda Diaz says the black Mazda has a Florida tag, CHRQ41. Troopers are also looking for 28-year old Robert Alex Corchado, whom they describe as a “…person of interest…” in the case.

Arrest warrants issued
Early Thursday morning the FHP said that Robert Alex Corchado had been named as the driver of the car being sought in connection with this accident, and that warrants had been issued for Corchado for Leaving the Scene Involving Death, and Leaving the Scene Involving Serious Bodily Injuries. FHP spokesperson Trooper Wanda Diaz said that if you spot Corchado, do not approach him but contact the Florida Highway Patrol at 407-737-2200.

Car ran into Kinder Care Building

The FHP says one four-year old girl at the Kinder Care Center was killed, and eleven children from the Center and one adult were transported to four area hospitals after the accident. Troopers say a car driven by a 61-year old man from Winter Park was turning into the Kinder Care Learning Center at 4035 Goldenrod Road around 3:05 p.m. Wednesday. The FHP says a car behind the Winter Park driver failed to slow down for the turning car, and struck the rear of the turning car and then left the scene. Troopers say the Winter Park driver’s car then jumped a curb, went into the parking lot of the Kinder Care Center, went onto a sidewalk and then into the Kinder Care Building and struck several children before coming to a stop at the back of the building.
