The Florida Highway Patrol is seeking a hit-and-run driver who killed a teenage bicyclist south of Jacksonville.

Thirteen-year-old Brian Andrew Alvezios was riding his bike Saturday night in Orange Park when he was struck by a car. He died at the scene.

The Highway Patrol told the Florida Times-Union that no description of the car was available, but it sustained damage to the right front or side, specifically the headlight area.


Box of dangerous drugs is recovered

Palm Beach County authorities have recovered a stolen box of medications that included some highly dangerous drugs.

The box was returned Sunday. It had been stolen from a fire rescue vehicle in West Palm Beach on Saturday. Further details were not immediately available.

Authorities told the Palm Beach Post that the box contained drugs that could result in paralysis, unconsciousness and death if injected or ingested.

The box contained three vials of Ketamine, three syringes of Etomidate and two vials of Norcuron. Ketamine and Etomidate are anesthetics and Norcuron is a muscle relaxant.

A small plane crashed in west Georgia as it tried to make an emergency landing, killing a Florida couple and their 24-year-old son.

Haralson County Coroner Danny Hutcheson said that 56-year-old Kim Woliver and 53-year-old Patricia Woliver died in the Saturday crash. The coroner said their son, Alex, died Sunday morning after he was rushed to the burn unit of Grady Hospital in Atlanta.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said the Cessna 177 went down west of Tallapoosa, not far from the Alabama state line.

The plane had departed from Knoxville, Tenn., and was headed to Panama City, Fla. Hutcheson said the plane was trying to make an emergency landing when it hit some trees.

The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.
