    You have your information wrong. I was in the second car that hit that man{Mr. Salazar}.I was driving. My husband and I were heading back to LaBelle from clewiston when we came accros the accident. We, along with another gentleman in a truck, stopped the traffic and I called 911. The first car to hit him drove off. We were unable to give the cops much info on that car. But we stayed until about 1 am after the coroner picked up his body. He was drunk driving. May he Rest In Peace.
