INDIALANTIC, Fla. (AP) — Authorities have found the body of a pedestrian two days after he was struck during a fiery crash outside a beachside home in Indialantic.
The Florida Highway Patrol says 59-year-old Nancy Chancey was driving about 100 miles an hour when her car hit a culvert, went airborne and hit the wall in front of Dave Robertson's home and burst into flames on Saturday.
Chancey was ejected and killed.
On Monday, a stranger stopped by Robertson's house, asking if he'd seen his brother. Robertson told Florida Today (http://on.flatoday.com/MKCvbn ) he got a sinking feeling. He looked in a thicket of Brazilian pepper trees and found the body of 60-year-old Art Stroud, a local house painter.
Troopers, deputies and firefighters searched the area Saturday, but didn't find the body.
