Suspect arrested in hit-and-run crash that killed 2 kids in Fla.
WILTON MANORS, Fla. (AP) — Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a suspect in a hit-and-run crash in South Florida that killed two children and hospitalized four more children on Monday.
The Broward County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that physical evidence led detectives to Sean Charles Greer, who was jailed Tuesday evening.
Officials say Greer tried to pass a bus as it was pulling out to merge into his lane. The car drove off the roadway into a sidewalk and hit the children.
Andrea Fleming, 6, and Kylie Jones, 5, died at the scene.
Draya Fleming, Laziyah Stokes, Johnathan Carter and Audre Fleming were transported to Broward Health Medical Center, but their conditions were unknown Tuesday. The children are two 9-year-old girls, a 10-year-old boy and a 2-year-old boy.
Police said the vehicle, located earlier Tuesday, had damage consistent with being involved in the crash. The front bumper was missing, which was located at the scene.
Detectives arrested Greer, who they say confessed.
