Mother still seeking answers one year after triple fatal hit and run

Jason Rantala reports. 3/1/2017

An Oceanway mother is still seeking answers one year after a hit and run crash took the lives of her son, his girlfriend and a friend.

The crash killed 24-year-old Curtiss Carlisle, 23-year-old Kyle Cassani and 21-year-old Allison Bushey.

During the early morning hours of March 6, the trio was driving along Duval Station Road heading to River City Marketplace after a UFC event when they were struck by another car causing a fiery crash into a tree.

"My world shattered from that moment, because I knew that was my son, I knew that was Allison, and I knew it was Kyle," said Carlisle.

Mom Jennifer Carlisle will never forget. Her, alongside Curtiss' sister, Kerri, can now only see their loved ones in pictures.

Carlisle said she's been in touch with the detective in the case every three weeks since the accident. Since then, leads have been gathered, but still no suspect.

"This is a crime. Instead of using a gun to kill my son and Kyle and Allison, a person used a vehicle," she said. She'll never stop until justice is served.

"When you left him in a burning car that night, and you left Kyle and Allison on the ground, you sent a message that said I absolutely do not care about the life of your lived ones and I will never forget that," said Carlisle.

Police are still looking for the newer-model silver Ford Fusion believed to be involved in the crash. If you have any information, you're asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office or Crime Stoppers.
