Troopers said the 63-year-oldman was killed while crossing the road on Eagle Circle, near East Lake Drive in Casselberry.


Investigators said an SUV driver hit the man Wednesday night before taking off.

The Florida Highway Patrol said it found the SUV abandoned about a mile away.

Seminole County officials did a traffic study on Eagle Circle last year.

The county routinely does traffic studies on roads, because people complain about speeding.

That study found that with nearly 2,500 cars driving through a day, most people obey the speed limit on this road. However, neighbors said they feel otherwise.

The speed limit on Eagle Circle starts at 25 mph on the north end of the road.

There are traffic calming devices, and then the speed limit increases to 30 mph just after Twelve League Circle, near the area where the hit-and-run crash occurred.

Seminole County will continue to monitor things on this road, and the sheriff’s office plans to continue targeted enforcement there to catch people speeding.
