Good Samaritan Helps Track Down Hit-and-Run Driver

A good Samaritan helped authorities track down a driver who was involved in a hit-and-run crash in Miami-Dade Saturday night.

Osmar Ramirez said he watched the entire scene play out as he was walking back to the gym in the 11800 block of Southwest 26th Street.

"I just heard the loud racing and I was already by the door and I just heard the crash, the twisting metal, the tires and all that," he said.

Ramirez said a white Mercedes was speeding and crashed into a Hyundai, and the driver of the Hyundai lost control and crashed into a Honda and light pole.

"All I saw was the car behind me coming at me and I said 'you know, I'm going to die,'" driver Sebastian Munoz said. "I see a Mercedes just from the left hand side just speeding and just knocks my car out causing it to hit the tree and spin four times and hit the pole."

That's when Ramirez snapped into action. He started running after the Mercedes trying to get the license plate number while dialing 911.

"I get on the call with the cops and giving them the license plate," he said.

Police were later able to track down the driver. His identity and the charges he's facing are unknown.

"I'm lost for words right now. It's crazy and what's even more crazy is that this guy is still alive," Ramirez said. "Luckily that guy in the Honda is alive because it looked crazy."
