Boca Raton couple pushing for more signs after hit and run crash near traffic circle

BOCA RATON, Fla. - A Boca Raton couple is hoping you can help find a driver who crashed into their house and car.

The hit and run took place early Sunday morning.

Ivo Marrachinho keeps playing out different scenarios.

"Who knows, we could have been in the sheer moment of walking into our house and we would have been hit," Marrachinho says.

No one was hit in the crash. Marrachinho says a white Dodge Charger swiped a traffic circle before crashing into his wife's parked car and then their house.

The impact pushed his wife's car about 20 feet. The crash broke the couple's garage door and left shattered glass all over the driveway.

Neighbors told Marrachinho the driver was in his 20s and was speeding down SW 12th Avenue before the crash.

The man drove away before witnesses could get to him. Marrachinho hopes police find him soon.

"Here you have an opportunity to catch someone before they kill somebody. I think they should make a little bit of an effort to try and catch this guy, make sure this doesn't happen again," he points out.

Boca Raton police say they are investigating.

Meanwhile, Marrachinho is pushing for more signs warning drivers about the traffic circle at SW 12th Avenue and SW 13th Street to prevent a crash in the future.

"There are always people walking, jogging, riding bicycles here, especially moms with their children and babies," Marrachinho explains.
