KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida driver is charged with killing a pedestrian while under the influence of drugs and leaving the scene.

The Florida Highway Patrol reported Sunday that 22-year-old Terry Morales-Aheran struck and killed a pedestrian in Osceola County late Saturday night and then fled the scene.

Troopers believe Morales-Aheran was under the influence of drugs and took a blood sample from him.

He was charged with DUI and leaving the scene of a fatal crash. He was being held in Osceola County jail Sunday. Jail records didn’t list a lawyer for him.

Authorities didn’t release the name of the victim.
