• Still no arrest in fatal hit-and-run on Goldenrod


    Since WFTV discovered surveillance video that showed a fatal hit-and-run in Orlando, Florida Highway Patrol said they have received numerous tips about cars matching the description.

    In the meantime, family and friends of victim Aaron Jones continue to gather at the crash site along Goldenrod Road near Valencia College Lane in hopes of finding the driver.

    "It makes me think someone will know something or stop and ask questions or give me anything to catch this guy," said Jones' cousin, Jason Milton.

    The accident happened Friday about 1:20 a.m., but FHP didn't have much to go on after the crash until Channel 9's Racquel Asa notified them that a nearby surveillance camera captured it all.

    Troopers told WFTV what they saw in the video changed the course of the investigation.

    Jones was hit by a vehicle while riding his scooter and the driver who hit him left the scene, according to troopers. Jones died a short time later at Orlando Regional Medical Center.

    Investigators said they have informed surrounding law enforcement agencies of the vehicle's description, spoken with officials at the apartment complex and even checked out some suspected vehicles, but nothing has resulted in an arrest so far.

    The vehicle is an older model, white, four-door light car with black trim. The car will have damage to the front right side.

    Troopers are asking anyone with information to come forward.

    Milton said he hopes the tips don't dry up, especially with a $2,500 reward being offered.

    "Now we've got more vehicles to go and check, and that's what the homicide investigators are doing," said Sgt. Kim Montes of FHP.
