Photos: Orange County Jail Mug Shots The Solara, which had been turning into a driveway separating the day-care center from Goldenrod Plaza professional offices, barreled through the parking lot, through a bush and into the KinderCare building, according to preliminary Florida Highway Patrol information. Rosado, who was working on the roof of a nearby gas station, climbed down and ran to the center. “It was bad,” he said. The driver of the Solara, Albert Dean Campbell, 61, of Winter Park , emerged uninjured but visibly emotional, Rosado said. Rescue crews descended on the day care, and news helicopters captured images of small children being removed from the day care on stretchers. At last count, Orange County Fire Rescue spokesman John Mulhall said at least 15 people were hurt in the crash, 13 of whom were taken to hospitals. Twelve were children. The injured were rushed to four different hospitals.

Florida manhunt for felon sought in deadly day care crash investigation | Fox News
Local officers are currently conducting a massive manhunt for the driver, identified by local authorities as 28-year-old Robert Corchado. Witnesses say that Corchado did not spend a second to check the casualties he left behind. Police records report that Corchado has been arrested multiple times in the past since he was 18, when he was first charged with extortion. Last 2010, he was sentenced to three years in prison for cocaine trafficking. Corchados vehicle was later found in a house on Orange Avenue in Winter Park. The bumper the car left at the scene of the accident matched with the Dodge Durango found in the residence. However, Corchado was not found anywhere near or inside the house or the car. Authorities were worried that Corchado might plan to leave the state, leading to a massive search at the Orlando International Airport. However, search operations were restructured when a new lead came to the police, saying that Corchado rented a black Mazda SUV with plate numbers CHRQ41.

Police said Thursday Corchado was driving a car that struck another vehicle that then jumped a curb and smashed into the KinderCare building near Orlando, killing a 4-year-old Lily Quintus and injuring 15 on Wednesday. A warrant was issued Wednesday for his arrest. ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT One child is reportedly in critical condition and three others in serious condition, The Orlando Sentinel reported. In total, 13 people were moved to area hospitals.

The convertible driver, identified as 61-year-old Albert Dean Campbell, was not injured.
