A 27-year-old man from South Florida has been arrested for a hit-and-run that took the lives of two children and injured four others.
Sean Charles Greer faces numerous charges, including two counts of leaving a scene of an accident involving death for Monday’s tragic incident.
Kylie Jones, 5, and Andrea Fleming, 6, died at the scene. Four other kids, Audre Fleming, 2, Johnathan Carter,10, Laziyah Stokes, 9, and Draya Fleming, 9, were rushed to Broward Health Medical Center.
According to reports, Greer was driving a 2009 Honda Accord southbound on Northwest Ninth Avenue at around 3 pm when a Broward County Transit bus stopped to drop off a passenger.
Speaking to NBC6, neighbor Harriet Lewis said she immediately ran downstairs and found the children lying on the street.
“I was just holding her hand and letting her know just hear my voice, don’t go, don’t go to sleep,” she recalled.
The three Fleming children were visiting their father, Audre Fleming Sr., when the fatal incident occurred.
The mother of Draya and Andrea Fleming, Tyricka Williams, wrote on a GoFundMe page: “I’m in the worse condition ever as a mother and don’t know how I’m going to prepare myself mentally to fight and keep a smile for the rest of my children.
“How am I going to plan a funeral while visiting my other daughter in the hospital who doesn’t know her little sister has passed away.”
Speaking to Miami Herald, Andrea’s uncle Stanley Holcomb Sr. described the young girl as a good-natured and smart first-grader.
“She kept us smiling and kept my heart going,” he expressed. “It’s too bad I couldn’t be there to save her.”
Greer is currently on probation for burglary after he broke into a home and stole a PlayStation 4 in 2018. His criminal history also includes arrests for marijuana possession, trespassing, shoplifting, resisting arrest, and driving without a license.
