Montgomery County officials were out today mapping the scene of the deadly hit and run where a 25-year-old man was struck by multiple vehicles and dragged along Warminster Road on the border of Hatboro and Upper Moreland between 2:00 to 2:30 a.m. Sunday

Authorities believe 25-year-old Rolando Dominguez-Villada of Horsham was walking in the southbound lane of Warminster Road near Mill Road in Hatboro, after leaving his job at a Willow Grove restaurant when a car struck him. The coroner says that Dominguez-Villada then flew into the northbound lane where another vehicle hit him again and dragged him more than 500 feet. After being dragged more than 500 feet the vehicle turned right, Dominguez-Villada’s body came dislodged from the car and came to rest on the corner of Warminster Road and Surrey Lane in Upper Moreland said Montgomery County Coroner Dr. Walter I. Hofman.

Hofman tells BuxMontNews.com that Dominguez-Villada died from multiple injuries caused by more than one vehicle. Sunday morning Upper Moreland Police Chief Thomas Nestel said that Dominguez-Villada had serious trauma to his body and was pronounced dead by paramedics from the Second Alarmers Rescue Squad.

Investigators closed Warminster Road around mid-day Monday to use lasers to map the area of the fatal hit and run. A ladder truck from Hatboro’s Enterprise Fire Company was on-scene as investigators used the extended ladder to get an aerial view of the accident scene.

Police on-scene this morning said Warminster Road between Mill Road and Surrey Lane was a crime scene. The scene extended to the first driveway on Surrey Lane but police would not say if they believed the vehicle that dragged Dominguez-Villada may have turned around there to continue heading north on Warminster Road.

Hofman said that the body was identified last night by family of Dominguez-Villada.

Authorities said yesterday that a citizen called 9-1-1 to report a body, Rolando  Dominguez-Villada, lying in the road when police arrived he was dead.

When police found  he was carrying a black backpack and a MP3 player that was similar to an I-Pod.

Hatboro Police Chief James Gardner said that a crash that occurred nearby at Byberry Road and Fitz Road crash does not appear to be related to hit & run as had been first speculated.

Hatboro police are looking for any who has information about the accident, their number is 215-675-2832.
