car-crash-1-1512737-640x480Auto accidents are an unfortunate, yet frequent reality of Miami’s roads. It’s important to make sure you have representation so you don’t get hurt both physically and financially. Consider a recent article for NBC Miami titled “Good Samaritans Stop Alleged Hit-and-Run Driver in Miami.”

Bobby Brooks of NBC Miami writes, “A would-be hit-and-run driver who allegedly struck a woman in Miami was taken into custody after witnesses chased him down early Sunday. The alleged hit and run happened at the intersection of Northwest 27th Avenue and Northwest 62nd Street. He might have got away if weren’t for the good Samaritans who saw the crash and laid a beat down on the suspect when he tried to run away. ‘The car hit the young woman. The young man jumped out the car and took his paper work or whatever and then ran,’ one woman said. ‘I thought she was in the car dead. Because she flew from the middle of the street to the grass,’ another woman said. The victim was rushed to the hospital with unknown injuries. But when the suspect tried to run the four women who witnessed the accident weren’t having it. ‘Four of them chased him but two of them grabbed him and pinned him up against the gate,’ one woman said. Once a woman named Tika got her hands on him he wasn’t getting away. ‘Tika jumped in the van, chased him down, beat him down, whoop whoop, hit him with the three piece,’ she said. And then they held him until the cops arrived. ‘He was drunk. A drunk driver and he hit an innocent person,’ the woman said. ‘It felt good. God will bless me.’”
