The Florida Highway Patrol is looking for the driver who killed an Astatula man in a hit-and-run pedestrian accident on June 21, 2010.
The FHP discovered the body of 32-year-old Shane Clinton Moore at 6:44 a.m. on June 21 on Duda Road after someone called 9-1-1 to report a man lying in the road. Moore was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators say that Moore could have been hit by a dump truck or a large truck with dual rear tires, based on the skid marks left at the scene. They said there was little debris left from the vehicle, so they have no evidence as to the make or model of the vehicle involved in the pedestrian accident.
The investigators also said that it appeared the vehicle tried to take evasive action, and that the accident may not have been the fault of the driver. However, under Florida law, anyone involved in a pedestrian accident is still required to stop.
Law enforcement officials said they had received a call earlier about a man in the road who appeared to be intoxicated; another emergency call came in 42 minutes later reporting a man lying in the road.
Anyone with information on the hit-and-run pedestrian accident is asked to contact the Florida Highway Patrol dispatch at 407-737-2213.
