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.

  3. Looking Back: Have you ever heard of Goose Pond?

    News

    I've lived in St. Petersburg most of my life. After a brief spell in North Carolina, my family moved back to St. Petersburg for good in 1978. And in all that time I've never heard the area around Central Plaza referred to as "Goose Pond."

    1952: Factors which made the Central Plaza development logical can be discerned in this photo, by those who know the realty situation here. Low grade and a 55-acre school site in storage kept the 90-acre Goose Pond (upper center) almost bare until now.
