Driver arrested in fatal Holiday hit-and-run crash

HOLIDAY — A driver was arrested Wednesday on charges stemming from a hit-and-run crash that killed a Holiday man seven months ago.

The incident happened about 9 p.m. April 10, as Scott A. Isenberg was driving on U.S. 19 near Beacon Square Drive. Authorities said Joseph "Jason" Vandoren, a 31-year-old husband and father of three, walked in front of Isenberg's car and was hit.

Vandoren later died at the hospital from his injuries.

Instead of stopping, Isenberg kept driving to his Dunedin home, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. A passenger in Isenberg's car called authorities shortly afterward.

Isenberg, 37, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident involving death. FHP spokesman Sgt. Steve Gaskins said Isenberg wasn't charged with causing the death because Vandoren walked into the path of Isenberg's vehicle.

Isenberg was released Wednesday from the Pasco jail on $10,000 bail.
