Fair Worker Killed in Hit and Run, Case Still Unsolved

A hit and run that claimed the life of a worker at the North Florida Fair last year has never been solved.

David Price had only been with the fair a short time and he lost his life crossing the street to get a bite to eat.

This 2002 Crown Vic - with a dent in the hood and a shattered windshield - is the car police suspect struck and killed North Florida Fair worker David Price.

Yet it was reported stolen the night he was killed and officers have not charged anyone with being behind the wheel.

"We certainly looked into the report that the vehicle was stolen. That's part of the ongoing investigation, not something we can comment on," said Tallahassee Police Spokesman David McCranie, "but again, we hope to connect all the dots and bring something forward to the state attorney's office for prosecution."

Price had only been with the fair for about six weeks when he was struck and killed at the corner of South Monroe and Paul Russell Road October 29th, 2009.

Police say he had just bought dinner at the Winn Dixie and was on his way back to the fairgrounds when a car hit him and kept going.

"Probably the person that did it didn't mean to do it, you know, couldn't see the person," said Strates Shows General Manager George Weston.

Those who worked with Price say it's disappointing to be back in Tallahassee a year later knowing the hit and run has never been solved.

"I think it's sad. I think if anybody knows anything they should come forward. It would give closure to the family and help solve the crime, because it was a crime," Weston said.

Tallahassee Police say this is a cold case, but is not a closed case. They hope now that the fair is back in town it'll prompt someone to step forward with the information they need to make an arrest. Call Crime Stoppers at 850-574-TIPS.
