Friends of golf cart driver ask suspect to turn themselves in

SUN CITY, Ariz. - Friends of a man killed when a car hit the golf cart he was driving are wondering why the man behind the wheel hasn’t turned themselves into police.

Somebody plowed into Leonard Gaabo, 85, at Tanglewood and Yosemite roads over the weekend.

The driver took off and hasn't been seen since.

Friends say Gaabo had a huge heart.

“I know he's gone, but it's just not real yet, it's just not real,” family friend Nita Lawless said.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said they're looking for a red or maroon Jeep Cherokee or Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The driver is said to be a Hispanic man in his late 20's to early 30's.
