Taft, Fla. — The family of Kevin Pope is asking for the public’s help finding the semi-truck driver who fatally struck and killed the 10-year-old Wetherbee Elementary School student.
Pope was hit around 2:30 p.m. at Landstar Boulevard and Wetherbee Road last Wednesday. Although the truck drove away, Florida Highway Patrol troopers are not calling this a hit-and-run crash.
“It’s not just affecting me it’s affecting a lot of people,” said Adrienne Edmonson, Kevin’s mother.
FHP is also looking for more witnesses and any available surveillance video.
A GoFundMe page has been started to raise funds for Kevin's funeral on Saturday.
