A South Florida family is recovering in the hospital after a reckless driver struck their vehicle and took off.
According to authorities, the family was headed to church on Sunday morning when a red Maserati, driving erratically, collided with their vehicle.
“Some guy in a Maserati doing 100-plus miles an hour, weaving in and out of traffic, clipped them,” said the victim’s grandfather Raymond Tunez, according to a report by 7News.
Thirty-four-year-old Christopher Tunez and his wife Meredith Tunez had their three children, a 5-year-old, a 3-year-old and a 7-month old, in their Honda CR-V when they crashed.
The crash occurred just after 11 a.m. on the northbound lanes of the Palmetto Expressway, near Bird Road.
Several good Samaritans outraged by what they had seen made unsuccessful attempts to stop the Maserati from fleeing.
The mother and father, along with their 7-month-old, suffered broken bones. They are recovering at Kendall Regional Medical Center.
Family members are now looking for answers and hope the driver turns himself in.
A GoFundMe page was set up to help with the family’s medical expenses. If you would like to donate, click here.
