A driver fled the scene after crashing into a building in Hollywood.
According to Hollywood Police, they responded to the accident just before 5 a.m. Saturday, at 2201 Sheridan Street. Police said that when they arrived they found a car abandoned inside the Wholesale Flooring Depot building.
According to a preliminary investigation, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said that the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed on Sheridan Street when it approached and went over railroad tracks, then became airborne.
Once in the air, the car landed 50 feet from the tracks, then hit a curb, which caused the driver to lose control. BSO added that the car then traveled an additional 300 feet before it smashed into the flooring company building making its way inside. No one was at the business at the time.
Once the car was stopped inside the building, a witness said the driver removed the license plate and took off on foot.
A good Samaritan called police and chased the driver until Hollywood Police officers were able to detain the suspect.
BSO deputies arrested the driver for fleeing the scene of an accident with property damage. The investigation continues.
