Suspect arrested in Pasco hit-and-run

HOLIDAY — A suspect has been arrested in connection with a July 26 hit-and-run in which a couple and their 4-month-old baby were injured.

Damian Ray Eagan, 29, of Holiday was arrested in Brevard County, the Florida Highway Patrol said Wednesday.

A warrant was issued Tuesday for Eagan on a charge of leaving the scene of a traffic crash with injury.

Dakota and Jordan Harwood, both 17, of Holiday, were pushing their baby, Jayson Harwood, in a stroller on the edge of the roadway on Chatlin Drive, north of Cincinnati Drive, about 3:20 p.m. July 26 when a blue Ford Crown Victoria struck Dakota Harwood, FHP reported.

The impact knocked him into Jordan Harwood and overturned the stroller, spilling the baby onto the road, a report said.

All three Harwoods suffered minor injuries, FHP reported. Dakota Harwood was treated at the scene, while Jordan Harwood was treated at Trinity Medical Center. Jayson Harwood was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa.
