BREAKING: Vehicle found in I-95 hit-and-run that killed Boca man, 36


A car believed to have been involved in the Labor Day weekend crash that killed a 36-year-old Boca Raton man on Interstate 95 has been found in a Broward County body shop, the Florida Highway Patrol said Tuesday.

Investigators said they are still trying to locate the person who was driving the Chrysler 200 that struck and killed Kevin Scheinberg.

Sonny Scheinberg, Kevin’s sister, said Tuesday she believes the the person responsible for the crash will eventually be caught.

“This is one step closer to giving my family the closure that we desperately need,” she said. “Today is probably the first day that I feel I can breath again.”

Investigators say the Chrysler was traveling north on Interstate 95 south of Yamato Road on the night of Sept. 2 when it changed lanes and struck Scheinberg’s motorcycle.

Scheinberg lost control and was thrown onto the roadway. He later died at Delray Medical Center. Investigators later released a surveillance-camera video showing that the Chrysler’s driver pulled over shortly after the crash but left the scene.

A sketch was later released of the man that FHP investigators wanted to speak to about the crash. Sonny Scheinberg described Kevin, a native of Wichita, Kan. as having a “Midwest charm.” Kevin, who worked as a computer-technology consultant, had recently moved to Florida from California.

Riding his motorcycle was one of his favorite activities, she said.

At a news conference last month, Scheinberg and her sister Jillian Halkidis pleaded for the driver turn himself in.

“I would have hoped that the person responsible would come (forward) and do the right thing,” Sonny Scheinberg said. Tuesday. “But, either way, they will be found.”
