FHP no longer looking for driver involved in Seminole Co. crash

Posted: Updated:

Troopers are no longer looking for the registered owner of the red 1998 Saturn that left the scene of a deadly crash on I-4 this morning.  Florida Highway Patrol was notified that Mr. Victor Eusebio Salinas has retained a lawyer and does not wish to speak to investigators.  Troopers will continue to process the evidence and move forward with the criminal investigation.

Earlier Sunday morning, Florida Highway Patrol reported that a 1998 Saturn traveling westbound on I-4 in the center lane lost control and crossed over into the westbound left lane and struck a 2012 Harley Davidson motorcycle.  The driver of the motorcycle was identified as Keenan Huff of Virginia.  Huff was thrown onto the roadway when a 2004 Toyota Van ran over him as he lay in the roadway.  Authorities say Huff died from his injuries. 

The Saturn that crossed into the left lane of traffic, was abandoned on the side of I-4 about one half mile from the accident scene.  Authorities said the driver of the Saturn had not been located or identified.  Troopers were looking to speak with Victor Eusebio Salinas of Seffner, since the 1998 Saturn is registered to him. 

After the initial crash occurred a Lake Mary Police Officer was the first responder on scene.  Authorities say he placed his marked patrol car to block the left lane of I-4 with his emergency equipment activated, Volkswagen that was traveling westbound on i-4 did not stop and struck the unoccupied patrol car.  The driver , 41 year old Tracey Flood was ticketed for careless driving.

    Melanie and Jeffrey Cornwell should have been getting a tax break for years on part of the homestead property in Dunedin they call their "little piece of Heaven." But due to a mistake at the Pinellas Property Appraiser's Office, they won't see any rebates for previous taxes, just a break on future tax bills.
