Mahmoud Arabi Dies After Being Struck By Hit And Run DriverOrlando, FL - One of our readers has a relative who knew 22-year-old Mahmoud Arabi and asked if we would help get the word out about his death.

Mahmoud Arabi was killed after being struck by a hit-and-run driver as he crossed an Orlando intersection early Monday morning. Arabi was from Australia and taking part in the Disney exchange program, a program that allows young students from around the world to get on-the-job experience at Disney theme parks.

“The victim was crossing with two other people and unfortunately they were crossing against the light,” said Sergeant Kim Montes of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Arabi was wearing his Disney uniform when he was struck by the car and was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, but died on Wednesday shortly after his mother arrived from Australia.

Knowing my luck, had I been the one that got hit, I would’ve died in Florida dressed as fucking Goofy.

Even though it wasn’t necessarily the driver’s fault, and the driver had the green light at the time of impact, they chose to flee the scene after the accident. Police would really like to talk to that driver. Sgt Montes says they found a passenger side mirror at the accident scene that was later identified as belonging to a green Ford.

Anyone with information regarding this crash is asked to call Florida Highway Patrol at 407-737-2213. Or, if you’re the driver, do the right thing and call the number yourself.

I used to never understand why people flee the scene of an accident if it wasn’t their fault, until I learned that a driver impaired by drugs or alcohol at the time of an accident would suffer less penalties if they leave the scene of an accident and then turned themselves in later when sober. Not saying that’s the case here, I’m just saying.

    I can picture you now dressed as Goofy as your life slowly ebbs away. Gave me a good chuckle.

    How sad. I hope the person turns themselves in. And my condolences to his family both at Disney and his home. I can only imagine how awful that would be to witness.

  • Evan Oswald

    wait, what did his Disney uniform look like?

  • Evan Oswald

    and maybe if society didn’t punish people for being impaired when mickey mouse decided to walk into traffic…..they wouldn’t run off. why the heck do they want to talk to the person who was driving? fuck that sounds like they’re going to get in trouble!

  • Buffettgirl

    It’s sad that this Australian kid that seems to have had his shit together, at least enough to have an internship with Disney, had to go and get killed in Flori-duh…

  • wastintime

    They left the seen of the accident. They are not supposed to do that.

  • Andyman

    I wonder if he was wearing headphones and didn’t see the car? My office building is at a dangerous intersection. There are no less than two cars a year that collide at it over my 10 years here. Every morning I have to make this horrible left hand turn and the light I am at has no arrow. And then you have all these people at the crosswalks wearing headphones and not paying a bit of attention to anything around them. I wonder how many more fatalities there are annually with people walking around oblivious to their surroundings. Not saying this guy was but damn – a lot of people do.

  • Evan Oswald

    rape victims don’t have their names released to the public, and even if they admit they lied about being raped….they don’t often get in trouble. This is all to not discourage people from coming forward with rape allegations.
    .
    here, if the person who hit this jay-walker didn’t have insurance, license, legal BAC, etc….then they were going to get in trouble. Maybe even blamed for the accident even though it wasn’t their fault. (a football player named dante stallworth had this happen to him)
    .
    So we need to do something different or people are going to take off.

  • wastintime

    Oh,I agree with you, I just thought maybe you didn’t know about that law.

  • Evan Oswald

    right right….oh well not going to bring back mahmoud

  • wastintime

    Poor kid. I feel bad for his family. And the person that hit him. That’s going to be hard to live with, even with them not being ay fault.

  • wastintime

    Damn, this kid.seems to have had his life together, and it all ends because of something so.senseless.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Leaving the scene proves the person who hit him is a gigantic asshole, and people SHOULD be punished for leaving the scene, whether they cause the accident or not. I’ve caused two accidents. One of them got dropped because the other driver was found to have been driving while extremely intoxicated and should have never been on the road.

    1.) It’s the god damn LAW to stay at the scene.
    2.) It’s common sense and the right thing to do.

  • OutOfBubbleGum

    Another bright light lost.

  • Evan Oswald

    so let’s get this straight, you caused the accident but the victim of your driving got in trouble? furthermore you got OUT of the responsibility of causing the accident?
    .
    that aint right! it defies common sense!

  • Evan Oswald

    yea i mean the person who hit him was a victim too

  • http://www.facebook.com/special.kali Kelly Eklectusbird

    I’m from Australia and hasn’t seen it in the news yet. Obviously a fake leadership spill is more important to the papers than a dead kid :-(

  • Back away from the gun

    Gotta be some cameras somewhere that got a photo of the vehicle. ?
    To the family;go over to websleuths.com and ask for help.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    It could have been worse for you, Morbid… It could have been “Tinkerbell Day” for you.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Common sense is HE shouldn’t have been driving PERIOD. BECAUSE HE WAS FUCKING PLOWED. His BAC was fuckin .214. I didn’t see him coming around the corner because he was doing at least TRIPLE the speed limit, BECAUSE HE WAS FUCKING PLOWED.

    But yeah. I’M the one you should be worried about. Who never drinks and drives.

  • http://hawtmamas.wordpress.com/ hawtmamma

    Goofy kept me off drugs.

  • Cleanskin

    As a fellow Australian I must that I couldn’t agree more :-(

  • Evan Oswald

    well you didn’t say he was speeding. in fact you said you caused both accidents but got off of one because of someone else’s BAC. so i guess i just mis-understood. i’m sorry you got hit by a drunk driver, but if someone is drunk and driving just fine and gets hit by a sober person….i want that sober person in trouble NOT the drunk person every fuck’n time – no question.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    I hate it when people don’t obey traffic laws. Jaywalkers especially get on my nerves, but people who cross against the light when the road is clear don’t bother me as much as the people who can’t be bothered to walk the 20 feet to the crosswalk, much less wait for traffic to be clear before they start crossing the road.

    I can’t help feeling bad for the kid, though–one stupid choice, and his life gets snuffed out as a result.
