FHP: Fatal hit-and-run driver likely fled to Mexico

OCALA, Fla., (WCJB) -- The Florida Highway Patrol says an international warrant has been issued for 28-year-old Caesar Perez-Roque, after they say he hit and killed an Ocala woman on December 1, 2018.

The FHP says that around 6:30pm, the victim, 22-year-old Gypsy Star McEntire, was driving a scooter on State Route 40 when Perez hit her with his car.

Ms. McEntire was taken to the Ocala Regional Medical Center, where she died of her injuries around 9:00pm that evening.

The car, a silver 4-door Chrysler 300, was last seen driving away down NW 53rd Court, and was later found by FHP, where they say they discovered evidence that Perez was the driver.

They suspect he has fled to Mexico, and on December 7, 2018, an international warrant was issued for his arrest.
