HOMESTEAD, FLA. (WSVN) - A man accused of being the driver in a fatal hit-and-run in Homestead has been arrested.

Surveillance video captured the moment a man on a scooter was struck near Krome Avenue and Southwest 14th Street, Sunday.

The dark-colored pickup struck and killed a 36-year-old victim before fleeing the scene.

Police have since taken 58-year-old David Linares into custody.

He has been charged with leaving the scene of a deadly crash and tampering with physical evidence.

Linares appeared in court on Tuesday and was ordered to be held on a $55,000 bond.

If he posts bond, Linares will be ordered to house arrest and will not be able to operate a vehicle.
