BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The hit and run driver who killed Road Ranger Arnold Metellus Saturday night was likely driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Edition — model year 2005-2011. FHP investigators recovered the right mirror from the accident scene.
Metellus, 59, was helping a stranded motorist in the northbound lanes of I-95 — just south of Palmetto Park Road — when the driver of the Jeep allegedly sideswiped the Road Ranger truck and the disabled vehicle. The driver continued on to exit at Palmetto Park Road while Metellus died at the scene. He was officially pronounced dead at Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
Anyone with information is asked to call FHP at 954-837-4012, or CrimeStoppers.
