NORTH BAY VILLAGE, FLA. (WSVN) – Police say they arrested the driver responsible for a hit and run in North Bay Village who sent a motorcyclist to hospital.
North Bay Village Police said the red Mustang captured in dashcam video traveling at high speed on a bridge near Northeast 79th Street and East Treasure Drive on Sunday morning was a rental vehicle.
The footage showed the moment the Mustang crashed into a man on a scooter and continued on.
The dashcam video captured a Good Samaritan who stopped to help the victim shortly after.
Police said they found the car in Palm Beach County and were able to identify who was driving it.
Investigators said this led them to make an arrest involving a felony summons.
Police said the suspect is scheduled to appear in Palm Beach County Bonds Court on Tuesday because the Miami-Dade state attorney’s office just issued a criminal summons for a promise to appear.
The driver of the scooter is expected to be OK.
The accident is still under investigation.
