NEAR FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WSVN) — A fender bender incident turned fatal, seconds after a man stepped out of his car.
The victim was rundown by a driver who struck his car.
Initially, the victim was able to walk away from the crash after being hit by the other car, but according to Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies, the victim succumbed to his injuries in July.
Surveillance video from the June 30 incident, at Northwest 25th Avenue in Franklin Park Drive, showed the hit-and-run driver in what is believed to be a Chevy Malibu.
The driver ended up turning at an intersection and crashed into the victim’s car.
The victim is seen getting out of his car to try and talk to the driver, but the driver took off and ran over the victim.
“Fortunately, the victim was able to get back into his vehicle, was able to drive away,” said BSO spokesperson Carey Codd. “The victim did make a delayed report of the hit-and-run a short time to BSO, the victim eventually went to an area hospital to be treated for injuries, but sometime in July, that victim did die from his injuries.”
Deputies are hoping the surveillance video will lead to an arrest.
The Chevy Malibu had driver front-end damage.
