At 8:30 in the morning on March 8th, 2014 our parents (Shirley and William Tschida) were in a car accident at the intersection of Hwy 441 and Ponkan Road in Zellwood. Our mother was injured and our father was killed as their car flipped over into the embankment. The driver of the vehicle fled the scene of this terrible accident.
The driver pulled over for a few minutes but then quickly sped off. Witnesses rushed to help but did not think to get a license number but say the driver was in a late model gray,white or silver truck. The driver’s truck would have had front bumper damage but could have been repaired since then. The driver is said to have been a male in his early 30’s.
The police examined several leads that did not produce results. The family is hoping that sharing our story again with the public will bring new leads. The family is offering a $10,000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the accident and leaving the scene.
