Police describe the driver of the van only as a Male between the ages of 29 to 35 about 6-feet tall, limping and wearing a Blue T-shirt and jeans.

Dean Wissler, Robert Wissler’s father, said his 25-year-old son had been on a date earlier in the night and that the two girls riding with him at the time of the accident were visiting South Florida.
