WINTER PARK, Fla. (AP) - A manhunt across Florida has ended with the surrender of an SUV driver wanted in a fatal crash at a day care that killed a 4-year-old whose mother pleaded for him to turn himself in.

Twenty-eight-year-old Robert Alex Corchado was charged Thursday with leaving the scene of a deadly accident almost precisely 24 hours after the KinderCare facility in Winter Park was torn open in the wreck.

Lily Quintus was sitting at a table waiting for her afternoon snack Wednesday when a convertible was sent careening through the building.

Police say Corchado was driving his Dodge Durango that hit the convertible to start the crash that also injured 14, mostly children.

Nicole Quintus in an earlier appeal for the driver to surrender said families are "emotionally destroyed" by what happened.
