BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The 911 tapes from the deadly hit and run in Boynton Beach show that the woman driving the car did stop to tell the children they shouldn't be in the road before leaving the scene.
Update TUE 10AM:
The tragic accident was a hard one to explain at the 5th grader's school, Forest Park Elementary.
BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A Boynton Beach woman sits in a jail cell preparing to face a judge. She's charged with a deadly hit and run crash. Police say she hit two girls killing one of them.
The woman, Leticia Flores, was booked into the Sunday night and will be in court later Monday morning.
Police say Flores hit two girls as they rode a scooter in their neighborhood. One of those little girls, 10-year-old Darness Brown, died. Neither girl wore a helmet.
It happened at the intersection of Southwest 9th Avenue and Southwest 3rd Street in Boynton Beach.
Neighbors got the first three letters off of the driver's license plate, and, minutes later, police caught up with her and put her in handcuffs.
Some neighbors living near where this happened say their roads just aren't safe. "Forty miles per hour on this road, and there's little kids walking around everywhere," said one neighbor.
"Speed bumps, I don't think a stop sign will help because people fly through the only one we have," added another.
Flores is charged with leaving the scene of a crash with death and driving without a license causing death.
