Hit-and-Run Driver Kills Man in Wheelchair
A man who recently got out of the hospital was struck and killed by a pickup in Dania Beach, Florida Sunday night half a block from his home. The Broward Sheriff's Office says the driver then left the scene of the accident.
One of the man's neighbors heard the accident and rushed out to see the wheelchair-bound main laying in the road. He said the man was a diabetic who recently had his toes amputated. The dead man's wife was taken to the hospital after collapsing when she heard the news.
Police are searching for an extended cab pickup truck that is possibly burgundy with tinted windows.
