On Sunday, January 15th, 2023, Titusville Police arrested 26-year old Nathaniel Anthony Nanan in connection with a hit and run crash that left one man in critical condition.
At approximately 8:45 p.m., officers witnessed the adult male victim walking southbound across Knox McRae Drive at the intersection of South Hopkins Avenue when he was struck by a 2013 beige Toyota Corolla traveling westbound on Knox McRae Drive.
The driver of the beige Toyota Corolla did not stop to render aid and fled the scene at a high rate of speed. Officers immediately responded to the traffic crash and transported the victim to a local hospital in critical condition while other officers located Nanan’s vehicle on Barna Avenue where they took him into custody without incident as he attempted to enter a residence nearby.
Nanan has been charged with:
– Failing to Stop or Remain at the Scene of a Crash Involving Serious Injury
– Driving While License Suspended/Canceled/Revoked with Knowledge
– Failing to Give Information and Render Aid (Crash)
– Operating a Vehicle While License Suspended/Canceled/Revoked Causing Death or Serious Bodily Injury.
He is currently being held at Brevard County Jail on $35,000 bond.
Titusville Police Traffic Officer Matthew Rasmussen said, “We remain committed to the safety of all motorists and pedestrians. We remind all motorists to remain at the scene of a traffic crash and leaving without rendering aid is irresponsible, inexcusable, and illegal”, added Rasmussen.
