Hit-and-run driver faces DUI, manslaughter charges in fatal crash, troopers say

One person was killed Monday morning in a four-vehicle hit-and-run crash on Orange Blossom Trail at Americana Boulevard, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The driver of the vehicle that left the scene, Guatemalan national Valentin Oswaldo Sis Sis, 30, was found nearby and was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center for treatment, troopers said.
He admitted leaving the scene and has never had a license in the seven years he’s lived in the U.S., investigators said.
Sis Sis was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident.
The accident happened at about 3:17 a.m. and blocked the northbound lanes of Orange Blossom Trail.

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — "When I turned to look, the guy's hunched over his wheel, he's wearing a white jacket (and) he had a hat on. He was in a silver (Honda) Civic. As he was coming toward the light, he sped up I guess because he was asleep at the wheel and he hit the cars," eyewitness Lisa Paneiro said.




According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Sis Sis was driving north on Orange Blossom Trail and for some reason did not slow down for a red light at Americana Boulevard. 
Two vehicles in front of him were stopped at the light, FHP said. 
Sis Sis's vehicle rear-ended the first vehicle, driven by Brett Adams, 42, of Orlando, causing it to hit the vehicle in front of it, investigators said. 
A vehicle in the left lane was also hit due to the force of the crash, troopers said. 
Adams was killed in the crash.

"(In) a rear end collision we typically don't see a lot of fatalities, but the severity of that crash did kill that driver," FHP Sgt. Kim Montes said.

Sis Sis was being held at the Orange County Jail on no bond.
