Two people are dead and now a man has been arrested after police say he struck a Honda scooter with his car, killing the driver and the scooter’s passenger in Pompano Beach.
The first 911 call came in around 6:40 a.m. Sunday morning after the driver of the car hit a scooter at the 1200 block of South Dixie Highway. Two men were laying in the road when Broward Sheriff’s deputies arrived. The men, who police did not identify, were pronounced dead by paramedics at 6:50 a.m.
The driver of a silver Toyota Camry rear-ended the scooter in the northbound lane of South Dixie Highway and then fled north toward Atlantic Blvd., according to a preliminary report from the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
Around 10:30 a.m., detectives responded to a tip about the possible location of the Toyota Camry. They found the car that they determined was involved in the crash and arrested a man in connection with the crash, but did not identify him Sunday afternoon.
The crash is still under investigation, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
