Police seek driver in deadly Fla. day care crash

By

WINTER PARK, Fla. (AP) — Authorities are casting a wide net in the search for the man they say drove the vehicle at the center of a day care car crash, then fled the scene.

The Florida Highway Patrol said Thursday that police agencies statewide have been alerted to be on the lookout for 26-year-old Robert Alex Corchado. Sgt. Kim Montes says officials don't know for sure whether he is still in that state.

One child died and 14 people were injured. On Thursday, Montes identified the girl who died as 4-year-old Lily Quintuf.

Police say Corchado was driving a Dodge Dorango that struck a convertible, which smashed into the KinderCare building.

He has been arrested eight times since 2000. In December, he was arrested on a charge of leaving the scene of a crash and drug count.
