Man tries to stop hit-and-run driver in Miami with sledge hammer

Man tries to stop hit-and-run driver in Miami with sledge hammer

A video captured an intense scene in Miami that unfolded over the weekend after a vehicle crash.

Police confirmed Sunday afternoon that there was a hit-and run crash on Northeast 36th Street and Biscayne Boulevard in Miami.

Police said Lagutenko appeared to be under the influence of drugs when he was stopped. The cause of the wreck is unknown.

Cell phone video captured the intense moments after an SUV crashed into several cars Sunday morning in Miami. In the end, however, he makes it out of the scene only to be found by the police later.

Two people then approached the driver, shouting and banging on the window.

In the video, one man screams "don't move", but the driver refuses to heed his words and attempts to run.

But cops warned others not to repeat the actions of the vigilante drivers who ganged up on the SUV should they find themselves in a similar situation, and dial 911 instead. He is then blocked by a black SUV.

Right away, we see a couple of people get in front of the vehicle and tell Lagutenko to stop while trying to open his doors.

North Korea faces no more conditions for talks
Kim will be able to tell his people that America's president is kowtowing to him out of fear of North Korea's nuclear arsenal. Trump then agreed to meet Kim by the end of May, he said.

The driver remains obstinate in his resolve to leave and refuses to budge from the auto.

One person then walked out from a white van, pulled out a sledgehammer and began breaking the windows of the vehicle. The driver, however, swerves out of the scene.

Miami Police said officers pursued Lagutenko on Federal Highway, near 48th Street.

Officers told Local10 that they don't encourage drivers or other people to try to stop someone from leaving the scene of an accident.

A insane scene unfolded in Miami on Sunday when a driver tried to leave the scene of a auto accident.

ABC affiliated Local 10 News reported the accounts of an eyewitness present at the scene.

"That is insane. You have a crash, you stop", witness Anthony Jimenez told WPLG-TV. "You have a crash, you stop".
