PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – A speeding driver who fled from police and was involved in a hit-and-run collision on Thursday night died after a fiery rollover crash in Broward County, deputies said.

Miramar police officers said the driver was speeding at the 6600 block of Miramar Parkway. As officers followed, the driver struck a pedestrian and fled, police said.

Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies joined the chase. The suspect was then involved in a rollover crash near the intersection of Southwest 44th Avenue and Hallandale Beach Boulevard in Pembroke Park around 9 p.m.

A witness said flames engulfed the car.

“He hit the poles and then it lit on fire,” said Camille Moustardy, who owns a business nearby. “We [were] in shock.”

Fire Rescue personnel took the driver to the hospital. Deputies said a doctor pronounced the driver dead, and the Miramar pedestrian was hospitalized.

The pedestrian is expected to survive and was still being treated for his injuries Friday morning.

Miramar police say they have been running radar after several drivers speeding have crashed into homes in that area. They say the person killed Thursday night was one of those drivers going too fast in the area.
