The good Samaritan who followed and helped officers find the driver who struck and killed a man in Miami Beach said the woman appeared to be "really drunk," according to 911 calls released by police Tuesday.
"I'm actually just following a car that just hit a man on Collins Avenue. As far as I know, at this time, she must have killed him," the man told the 911 operator in the call.
Rather than stay at the scene, 20-year-old Karlie Tomica drove to her apartment in the 5600 block of Collins Avenue, with the good Samaritan not far behind.
Miami Beach Police say the man, who wasn't identified, helped them arrest Tomica, who faces a charge of leaving the scene of a crash involving death in the incident that happened around 6 a.m. Monday outside the Shelborne Hotel at 1801 Collins Avenue.
