AUBURNDALE, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida man waiting to be sentenced on charges stemming from a fatal hit-and-run crash died in another crash over the weekend.
    
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that 40-year-old Christopher John McCoy was driving west on Interstate 4 near Auburndale shortly after midnight Sunday when he rear-ended an SUV. His car spun off the road and flipped into a ditch. He was not wearing a seatbelt.
    
FHP says the SUV came to a stop without losing control. Its driver and passenger were not injured.
    
The Ledger (http://goo.gl/i7NIfr ) reports that McCoy pleaded no contest earlier this month to leaving the scene of a September 2013 crash where a pedestrian - 56-year-old Danny Ray Simons - was hit and killed. McCoy had been facing up to 30 years in prison at a July 10 sentencing.
