Teen To Face Charges In Deadly Hit & Run

CORAL SPRINGS (CBS4) – The Broward State Attorney’s Office is deciding what charges an unlicensed 15-year old boy will face for Monday’s deadly hit and run accident which claimed the life of 69-year old Emil Angel.

Angel’s friends said he like to walk everywhere and on Monday was headed out to do a little Christmas shopping. As Angel tried to cross University Drive at Ramblewood Drive near the Coral Square Mall he was struck by Toyota with the unlicensed teen behind the wheel.

As Angel’s body crashed to the ground, the teen reportedly panicked and took off. A police officer who saw the accident stopped to help Angel. He also saw Toyota turn into mall’s parking lot and three teens bolt into the mall.

Police found one of the teens in Macy’s, the other two were found in JC Penney.

Police have not speculated on what charges the unlicensed teen driver will face, but have said that his two 15-year old passengers probably won’t be charged.
