MMA fighter killed in hit-and-run accident
25-year-old Jordan Parsons, a Florida MMA fighter, was a pedestrian involved in a hit-and-run accident in Delray Beach. The crash occurred just blocks away from the Joca Hybrid Training Center, where Parsons was training for a fight. A driver in a gray sport model Range Rover hit Parsons while he was walking and then immediately left the scene.
Police have gathered several clues, including car parts that were left behind at the scene of the accident. They know the make and model of the car and are hoping to solve the case with help from the public. One officer quickly responded to the scene and was able to apply pressure to an injured limb until an ambulance arrived. The injured leg had to be amputated, and Parsons was placed on life support for several days. Unfortunately, Parsons succumbed to his injuries.
The police are looking for any tips or information that can help further their investigation to find the party responsible for the young man’s death. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Parsons at this time.
