1 Killed, 1 Injured In Orlando Hit-And-Run

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a teenager is dead and another is in critical condition after a car hit the bicycle they were riding near Orlando.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the hit-and-run crash happened around 3:20 a.m. Friday, ejecting both teens from the bike. A black Mercedes fled the scene.

According to FHP, the bicycle was not in a crosswalk as it crossed State Road 50.

Authorities are searching for a black Mercedes, which likely has extensive front-end and windshield damage. Troopers are also asking anyone who witnessed the crash to contact them.

FHP says 17-year-old Melanie Luque died at the scene and 18-year-old Travis Luque Exposito was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center.
