• More details released after deputy strikes pedestrian with car in Titusville


    TITUSVILLE, Fla. - The state attorney's office opened up Friday about the evidence it has in the case of a Brevard County deputy accused of striking a pedestrian with his vehicle while off-duty.

    Police revealed that there is dashcam video of the minutes after the accident that show Sgt. James Kent Sellers was at the scene of the accident.

    Authorities also said Sellers reported the accident about three seconds before another 911 call was made.

    On Friday, police released the timeline of calls, showing a total of five calls in a matter of seconds.

    The State Attorney's Office also revealed the existence of dashcam video that shows Sellers in the vicinity of the accident, even though his wife drove the vehicle from the scene prior to police arriving.

    The State Attorney's Office said it will review the case and determine what, if any, charges are applicable.

    A key to that decision will be the results of a blood test to see if Sellers had alcohol in his system the night of the crash. If the results are positive, police said Sellers’ wife could also face charges for removing the van.

    Another key piece of information police released on Friday was the location Sellers was leaving when the accident happened.  Investigators said Sellers was at a Burger King only minutes before the accident.

    The Florida Department of Law Enforcement expects the blood results to be ready in about two weeks.

    Police said the victim, Robert Rajah, was not in a crosswalk when he was struck.
