ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. —

Florida Highway Patrol troopers released a crash report in the hit-and-run accident that sent a car through the wall of a day care center, killing one child and injuring several others April 9.

According to the report released Wednesday, three children, Lily Quintus, June DeCalzada and Kaleb Infante, were all hit by the Toyota Solara when it came through the wall of the KinderCare on Goldenrod road. Lily, 4, died from her injuries.

The report said that 11 children and one adult were injured by debris from the crash.

According to troopers, the Toyota was traveling north on Goldenrod Road. As the Toyota slowed to make a turn into the KinderCare parking lot a Dodge Durango struck the rear of the Toyota.

The report said the impact forced the Toyota across the parking lot, out of control and through the wall of the day care.

According to the report, the car crashed into a playroom area where it struck three children. It then went through an interior wall and stopped in another room.

The Dodge Durango fled the scene of the accident was located later that afternoon.

Troopers said the man they believe was driving the Durango, Robert Corchado, turned himself in to authorities the following day.

Corchado, 28, is being held in the Orange County Jail on a $100,000 bond.

Trooper said Corchado rented a vehicle shortly after the accident, and in a bond hearing Monday prosecutors told a judge they believed Corchado was a flight risk.

Attorneys for Corchado told the judge that there is no evidence Corchado was behind the wheel of the SUV

Recently Corchado was ticketed for careless driving, Channel 9 learned. And WFTV investigative reporter Christopher Heath learned Corchado was involved in another hit-and-run in December that happened near another day care center.

Records show he was then arrested in Orange County and spent three years behind bars after being convicted of trafficking in cocaine.

On Thursday, troopers said blood alcohol results on the driver of the Toyota, Albert Dean Campbell, 61, showed there was no alcohol or drugs in his system at the time of the crash.

FHP troopers are expected to release a traffic homicide report in the incident at a later date.
