    Yo Dade, keep your killers down there would ya? I’m going to chalk this one up for Dade which makes the hit & run score: Dade 10 – Broward 2 for 2011

        Explain to me how knowing how many people have been killed by hit and run drivers this year is ignorant? Sounds pretty “informed” to me. I am a professional driver of a level that might boggle your comprehension and could pretty safely say that if I were in that vehicle we might not be having this exchange.
        And oh yeah, by comparison, the driving I see in Dade County is nightmarish.

    First off, CBS needs to get their facts straight before posting something without knowing the entire story. This was absolutely NOT a hit and run. The driver of the car stopped and reported the incident to police. He was NOT arrested and his blood alcohol level was tested at the scene. Although this is still under investigation, the driver was released and was not given a citation. As for you, “Sherriff” this was an employed, American citizen with a clean background and a valid driver’s license! This was an accident you IGNORANT FOOL!

  • Something smells

    Why didn’t the police arrest the driver if he did indeed “hit and run??” What the police are saying doesnt make sense.
