At 12:35 a.m. Sunday, the Range Rover was southbound on South Federal Highway as Jordan Paul Parsons was walking west across Federal at Lindell Boulevard. Parsons was on the south side of the intersection, walking in the crosswalk. The vehicle hit Parsons and fled, leaving him lying in the roadway. A nearby DBPD officer, Derek Chahine, arrived on scene very quickly and applied pressure to Parsons’ severe leg wound until Delray Beach Fire Rescue responded and transported Parsons to Delray Medical Center where he remains in critical condition.
It’s unclear at this early stage of the investigation who had the right of way. Investigators say Parsons was wearing headphones when he was hit and may not have heard the vehicle approaching. Anyone with information about this crash or the suspect vehicle is asked to please contact Office Dan Cramer at (561) 243-7800 or report anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at (800) 458-TIPS (8477), online at http://www.crimestopperspbc.com or by texting email@example.com. Crime Stoppers will pay a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
