Authorities looking for Ford Explorer in hit-and-run that killed Tampa pedestrian

TAMPA — An investigation into a hit-and-run crash that killed a pedestrian has narrowed down the model of sport utility vehicle authorities are looking for.

Police said Sunday they are searching for a 1993 or 1994 black or dark-colored Ford Explorer with chrome trim. The SUV should have damage to the right front, and the right-front turn signal lens is damaged.

The SUV struck and killed a man Saturday while he was crossing against the traffic light on 50th Street at Broadway Avenue, police said.

Aaron Keith Cordes, 57, was pushing a shopping cart in the crosswalk when he was struck by the northbound SUV, police said.

Several witnesses tried to render aid to Cordes until police officers and paramedics arrived and started CPR. Cordes died several hours later.

Anyone with information on the hit-and-run is asked to call the Tampa Police Department at (813) 231-6130.
