Plant City police: Hit-and-run driver dies in second crash

PLANT CITY — After leaving the scene of another crash, a man lost control of his sport utility vehicle and died Saturday when it overturned, police said.

Around 9:10 p.m., an SUV traveling north on the James L. Redman Parkway struck the rear right corner of another vehicle, according to Plant City police. But the SUV drove away from the crash scene, continuing on the parkway.

The SUV, a Chevrolet Suburban, headed east on E Park Road, turning south on Walden Woods Drive. On that road, the vehicle hit a curb and the driver lost control, police said. The SUV struck a tree and overturned.

The driver, 29-year-old Jorge Hernandez-Sargento of Plant City, was ejected and died at the scene, police said. A passenger, Elnar Osorio, 34, of Plant City, suffered minor injuries.

The investigation continues.
