LAUDERHILL, FLA. (WSVN) - Police have arrested the man who, they said, is behind a crash that caused a lot of damage in Lauderhill.
Lauderhill Police identified 62-year-old Roy Render as the driver who crashed a black four-door truck into Rebecca Goldston’s home at around 2:30 p.m., Sunday.
Goldston and her six kids were not home at the time of the crash.
“The table next to my bed was basically pushed towards my bathroom, the bed is kind of pushed up a little bit, and then you have all of the debris from the glass and the bricks that were there,” she said.
Investigators said Render fled the scene before slamming into Chi Sheu’s silver truck nearby, leaving it with front-end damage.
“I was shocked,” said Sheu. “This not a good thing. That’s my workhorse right there, you know?”
Officials said Render proceeded to slam into six more cars, one palm tree, two mailboxes and more than one street sign before his vehicle got stuck.
Authorities said he was left uninjured.
He is now facing several charges including DUI and leaving the scene of a crash with property damage.
As for Goldston’s home, it has been deemed unsafe, and they have been forced to move out, but Goldston is glad that she nor her kids were hurt.
“Could’ve lost one of them. That’s why I’m thankful, that’s why I’m blessed,” she said.
