Man arrested after string of hit-and-runs in Miami

MIAMI (WSVN) - A man suspected in a string of hit-and-runs has been taken into custody.

According to police, Robert Lee Harden was caught after a violent crash on Northwest 69th Avenue and Flagler Street, Wednesday night.

Officials said the wild ride started when he slammed a red Jeep into several vehicles in the southbound lanes of the Palmetto Expressway.

A Florida Highway Patrol trooper witnessed the crash and tried to stop the driver, but they said he took off.

Harden came to a crashing stop that another driver could not avoid.

“By the time I saw him, he was already on me, and next thing I know, my car was spinning and all of my bags had gone off,” said Isabel Montoya. “As you can see my car was a total loss. It’s a miracle that absolutely nothing happened to me.”

Harden now faces a long list of charges including driving without a valid drivers license, reckless driving and leaving the scene of a crash.
