Ford With Special Paint Scheme Is Clue
LABELLE, FL. -- The Florida Highway Patrol is asking for help to solve a deadly hit and run from February 6, that killed pedestrian 47-year old Mirian Lopez at Cowboy Way and Lillian Street in LaBelle.
The vehicle looked for is a 2002 to 2008 Ford. There are only four types of special edition ford vehicles that use the maroon and light trim paint scheme which includes: The Eddie Bauer edition Expedition, The Eddie Bauer edition Explorer, The King Ranch F-250, and The King Ranch F-150.
The hit and run vehicle was described as a SUV; however it could have been a F-150 or F-250 with a topper on it.
If anyone has any information on a vehicle matching this description that has suffered any unexplained damage or knows of anyone that has had their vehicle in for repair for damage that looks to be consistent with a traffic crash please contact Cpl. Allen Williams at the Fort Myers FHP Station.
