Broward County, Miami-Dade County, and Palm Beach County are the top three counties in Florida for hit-and-run car accidents, according to news sources. The overall number of hit-and-run car accidents has risen by over a 25% in the last three years. In 2016 alone, Palm Beach County reportedly experienced 7,694 hit-and-run car accidents, which caused 12 fatalities and 102 injuries.

Hit-and-run car accidents occur when a driver hits another vehicle or a pedestrian and fails to remain at the scene of the accident. The incident is considered a hit-and run crash even if the driver is apprehended or becomes incapacitated near the scene of the accident. While some hit-and-run accidents are truly an accident (a driver may not realize they hit someone), many involve drugs and alcohol. And the results are sobering: Sources indicate that 179 people died after being struck by hit-and-run drivers in Florida last year.

One such case occurred earlier this week, when Oscar Roberto Acevedo of Miami-Dade, Florida was arrested for a DUI accident that occurred last year. Although the case was not a hit-and-run, 29-year-old Acevedo allegedly crashed into a vehicle on Sawgrass Expressway. The crash killed Samuel Anthony Ruiz Jr. of Coral Springs and injured four others, sources report. It is not clear why it took a year for authorities to charge Acevedo, nor is it known whether he sustained injuries in the crash.Acevedo, 29, is now facing charges of DUI causing death, DUI causing serious bodily injury, and reckless driving. A bond of $99,000 has been set for him, and if he is released, he is not permitted to use drugs or drink alcohol while he awaits trial.
