Teen Flees Scene After Hitting 16-Year-Old On Bike

APOPKA, Fla. (AP) — One central Florida teen is dead and another is in jail following a hit-and-run crash in Apopka.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 16-year-old Edward Fernandez was riding his bicycle Monday night when he was hit by a car. The driver kept going after the crash.

Apopka police located the car a short time later, thanks to descriptions by witnesses. Authorities say the driver who hit the teen is 18-year-old Kristy Nandoo. They say she had traded vehicles with her boyfriend when they arrived. She remained in the Orange County Jail on Tuesday afternoon.
