FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Police in South Florida are searching for a driver who ran over two Norwegian tourists and then fled without helping the injured pair, authorities said.
The hit-and-run crash occurred shortly after 4 a.m. Thursday on a Fort Lauderdale street that runs between a row of bars and the beach, a police news release said.
Security video from a nearby business shows the man and woman stumble off a curb and fall into the road. They land directly in the path of a passing car, which attempts to swerve away but still rolls over them.
