A vigil was held for the children that were victims of a hit-and-run crash in Wilton Manors. People stopped by the memorial to drop off balloons and flowers and to pray for the children still in the hospital and for the two young lives lost.
The crash took the lives of 6-year-old Andrea Fleming and 5-year-old Paris Kyli-Ann Jones.
The driver, identified as 27-year-old Sean Greer, appeared before a judge Wednesday, where the suspect got into a scuffle with a deputy, knocking over a podium after hearing his charges and that he would be held without bond.
The suspect was already on probation for burglary and drug charges when he allegedly tried to drive around a county bus, then hit the children and drove off. He also has a history of driving without a license.
