The disaster that unfolded at the Florida highway on Thursday evening, started with an act of condolence, when Demetrius Andoni suspended his own car on the side of interstate 275 in St. Petersburg. 22-year-old man watched as the machine turned and got stuck on the median, and he wanted to help.
Soon after, his car returned to the highway, Andoni returned to his own personal car, a 4-door Hyundai in 2015, according to Florida highway patrol adept Steve Gaskins.
Just during this time, according to the authorities, in 1996, a Ford f-150 truck raced along the highway and crashed Andoni, apparently, killing him.
Videos have proven, in fact that truck drivers comes out of their own truck and inspects whether the man he punched, dead, said Hoskins.
After that, the man took Hyundai Andoni and went, leaving personal truck back along the median, Gaskins said.
Authorities identified the man as Dana Thomas bird, 30, from St. Petersburg.
“Bird braked later such as the collision happened,” said Gaskins of the Washington Post. “He knows in fact that Andoni is dead, gets in his car and leaves. It doesn’t have the ability to be a more obscure story than that.”
Reason why nobody braked in order to assist Andoni subsequently like he was hit at around 9 PM on Thursday, or were there any passers-by witnesses this, in fact what happened. A number of hours through Andoni’s founder used GPS to track Handai, who was left in an office building about 2 miles North of the disaster space, and claimed that his offspring had disappeared without producing, authorities said.
Bird apparently left a personal purse inside Handay, Gaskins said. Apart from this, the whole conflict was captured on the GoPro camera, which worked as a dash camera from inside Andoni’s car, he said.
“We have a video of GoPro, in the leading victim, stopping to assist, to get hit, the young man stole his own car, threw it, a whole 9 yards, ” he said.
