According to a crash report, a hit-and-run on Interstate 95 sent four people to the hospital and led authorities to arrest a driver.
Report says first responders arrived on the scene in an Allapattah neighborhood where several vehicles were trapped in a ditch.
A Dodge pickup truck was reportedly headed southbound, towing a boat, when it was involved in the hit-and-run collision. It was reported that the crash sent the truck, a trailer and the boat it was towing off Interstate 95.
According to the report, the driver and three passengers were trapped inside. First responders were able to get all four people out of the car. They were transported to hospital and are expected to be OK.
Report from Florida Highway Patrol says, Jose Morrillo was arrested in connection to the incident.
A few blocks away from the crash, troopers were seen towing away a Honda SUV believed to be involved in the hit-and-run.
Morrillo has been charged with fleeing the scene of an accident with injuries. He has since bonded out of jail.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “If you or a family member has been involved in an auto accident and the other driver has left the scene of the crash, you need to act quickly. It is best if you can get the names and phone numbers of any witnesses along with a vehicle description. Contact the police immediately and file a police report. Take photos of the crash scene and the damage to your vehicle or property. Contact any businesses or homes in the area that may have video surveillance of what occurred and the vehicle that fled. All of this will assist the police in locating the hit and run driver. Finally you should contact a car accident attorney to help guide you through this difficult process.”
