Suspect charged with leaving the scene of an accident that caused a death

Authorities have arrested a 32-year-old man in connection to a fatal hit-and-run collision in Miami.

Geraldo Pagan was struck on a Miami causeway bridge on Dec. 17.

According to a news release, Pagan, an Orlando tourist visiting South Florida, lost control of a scooter he was driving and fell to
the roadway. He picked himself up but was then hit by a vehicle. Pagan was taken to a hospital, where he died. The vehicle fled
the scene.

Authorities eventually tracked down and arrested Gaston Henriquez. According to an arrest affidavit, Henriquez is charged with leaving the scene of an accident with a death. Online jail records indicate that he is being held on $100,000 bond.

An arraignment hearing has been scheduled for January.
