ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - A teenager is dead and her brother is in critical condition after they were hit by a car early Friday morning.

Officials said the hit-and-run accident happened at about 3:30 a.m. on East Colonial Drive at Dean Road.

Melanie Luque, 17, was killed and Travis Luque Exposito, 18, was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

According to investigators, the victims were riding a bicycle across East Colonial Drive when they were hit. They were not in a crosswalk, trooper said.

Troopers said they are looking for a black Mercedes with heavy front-end damage and a mirror missing on the passenger side. A Mercedes emblem is also missing.

The accident closed the eastbound lanes of East Colonial from Dean Road to Lake Downey Road, but the roadway reopened shortly after 8 a.m.
