WFTV learns more about man accused of helping friend after fatal day-care crash



ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Channel 9 tracked down new information about the man investigators said helped the driver accused in a deadly day-care crash in Orange County earlier last month.

Authorities said Robert Corchado drove from the scene after causing another vehicle to crash into the KinderCare on Goldenrod Road in early April, killing 4-year-old Lily Quintus and injuring dozens more.

WFTV obtained more than 200 pages of new documents and learned more about the man accused of trying to help Corchado avoid getting caught, Seyoum Cameron.

Investigators said Corchado got help from Cameron at the house where he ditched the SUV after the accident.

Investigators said they found out about Cameron right away and actually questioned him the day of the crash, but new court records say he refused to talk to them.

The new documents say a witness told Florida Highway Patrol soon after the deadly crash that Cameron was the person who took Corchado to rent a vehicle.

Video shot by WFTV the day of the accident shows Cameron was at the house, on North Orange Avenue, where troopers said Corchado ditched his damaged SUV minutes after the crash.

The new records show troopers tried to talk to Cameron there at that time, but their report said Cameron refused to name the driver and refused to answer their questions.

Cameron's mother, Sandy Cameron, told Channel 9 on Wednesday that her son had no idea why Corchado wanted to rent a vehicle.

"Corchado needs to tell the truth," she said.

The new FHP report said records at the Enterprise rental car office where Corchado rented another SUV show Cameron was with Corchado at that time.

Cameron was arrested on misdemeanor drug charges last month.  He is not facing any charges related to the crash.
