Tragic accident that occurred on December 27th in Wilton Manners, Florida. Nine-year-old Laziyaka Stokes was seriously injured after being struck by a hit and run driver on Northwest Ninth Drive outside an apartment building. According to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, Sean Greer was driving southbound and approaching a Broward County public transit bus that had stopped to drop off a passenger. Greer didn't allow the bus to merge and instead tried to speed around it, driving up onto the sidewalk where he hit multiple children, before fleeing. Greer was later apprehended and confessed to the hit-and-run. He faces several charges, including two counts of leaving the scene of an accident involving death, tampering with evidence and driving with a suspended license. He is also on probation for burglary of a dwelling in Broward County. The young victim was rushed to Broward Health Medical Center for treatment of her injuries. We send our thoughts and prayers to the young victim and her family.
