Jeep Cherokee located in fatal Road Ranger wreck

SOUTHWEST RANCHES, FL (WFLX) - The Florida Highway Patrol said Tuesday they have recovered a black Jeep Cherokee believed to be involved in a hit-and-run crash that killed an Interstate 95 Road Ranger.

The crash occurred on October 26 on I-95 south of Palmetto Park Road in Boca Raton, killing Arnold Metellus.

FHP said the Jeep Cherokee was recovered at a residence in Southwest Ranches in Broward County. The investigation is continuing to determine who was driving the vehicle.

What led to the vehicles discovery was not immediately disclosed.

No arrests have been made.

Metellus worked for Anchor Towing and Marine Transport of Broward, a contractor that provides Road Rangers for the state's Department of Transportation.

He had stopped to assist a couple in a white 2011 Dodge Charger when he was hit.

Cordel Brown, 30, of Riviera Beach, the car's driver, and Cynthia Lynn Soriano, 22, of Hollywood, were treated for minor injuries at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, FHP said.

At a news conference on Oct. 29, investigators displayed some clues that were left at the crash scene: The Jeep's fender lining, a right headlight and a broken chrome sideview mirror -- all items that were believed to have come from the hit-and-run vehicle.
