Woman makes plea for hit-and-run driver come forward
SUNRISE, Fla. (WSVN) -- A South Florida woman has a message for the driver who struck and killed her fiancée and left him to die.
Kaly Freidenreich's fiancée, John Quintal, left her home on a bicycle Sunday night to buy some soda at a convenience store, but he never made it back. "Someone got away with murder, and justice needs to be served," said Freidenreich.
Freidenreich went looking for him when she got the terrible news. "They had the crime scene tape all around. Sunset Strip was completely closed down on both directions," she said.
According to police, a car slammed into Quintal on Sunset Strip, right in front of John Wilson's home. "The bicycle was in the driveway, his shoe was here, the other shoe was in the middle of the street," said Wilson. "I'm not sure how exactly that happened, but it had to be a pretty hard force."
Quintal's pendent landed near Wilson's front door. Wilson found silver paint chips that may have come from the vehicle that struck Quintal.
Quintal leaves behind a son, a grandson and a heart broken fiancée who wishes the driver would have stopped. "How dare you? How dare you? I'm a nursing major, and how dare you not stop and maybe that CPR, those two breaths and two compressions can save that life that your gonna end," she said.
If you have any information on this hit-and-run driver, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
