Recently, a woman was arrested in Daytona Beach for hit-and-run after allegedly running a stop sign and striking a city police officer's cruiser with her own vehicle on International Speedway Boulevard before fleeing.
The 35-year-old suspect was apprehended and arrested a short time later after she crashed in a vacant lot, following a brief chase by law enforcement. At the time of the incident, there were five people inside the suspect's vehicle.
While our Daytona criminal defense lawyers concede she likely would have faced some criminal charges even if she had stopped, the consequences now will likely be far more severe. She faces felony charges that include leaving the scene of a crash with damages, fleeing law enforcement officials with active lights and sirens and habitually driving with a suspended or revoked license.
