Lengthy record for man charged in deadly daycare crash

Tampa, Florida -- Heartbreak and sorrow for all that gathered at the makeshift memorial for 4-year-old Lily Quintus. A little girl, whose life appeared to be nothing but joyous.

It's a life that ended too soon.

Lilly was one of 50 kids at the KinderCare center in Winter Park when a hit-and-run driver caused another vehicle to crash through the building.

Parent Ralph Vallez grieves for the Quintus family.

"Although my son is alright, my heart is still with them. Not matter what, we're all in this together."

The man investigators say was behind the wheel, 28-year old Robert Corchado, turned himself into the Orange County Jail this afternoon. They say the convicted felon has gang ties and a lengthy record. He was also arrested for a hit-and-run back in December.

Bond for Corchado has been set for $100,000 and if convicted he faces up to 30 years in prison.

Along with Lily, 14 other children were injured. 5 kids are still at the hospital.

A crowd-funding campaign has been launched to help Lily's family pay for funeral costs.
