UPDATE

A third child died 7 months after the deadly accident in Wilton Manors where a hit-and-run driver ran over a group of kids at a bus stop.

Update from BSO:

Almost seven months after a deadly hit-and-run in Wilton Manors killed two children, a third child succumbed to her injuries.

The Broward County Office of the Medical Examiner and Trauma Services notified Broward Sheriff’s Office traffic homicide investigators that Laziyah Stukes died on Monday, July 11 because of the injuries she sustained from being struck by a vehicle on December 27, 2021.

The hit-and-run occurred at approximately 2:48 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 27 when Broward Regional Communications received a call regarding a crash with injuries near 2417 N.W. Ninth Ave. in Wilton Manors. Wilton Manors Police Department, BSO deputies, Fort Lauderdale Police Department, and Fire Rescue responded.

The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2009 Honda Accord Sedan, driven by a male subject, was traveling southbound on Northwest Ninth Avenue (Powerline Road) approaching the 2500 block. At the same time, a Broward County Transit bus was stopped to drop off a passenger. As the bus pulled out to continue southbound, it began to merge into the right-thru lane from the edge of the roadway. At that time, the Honda approached the bus from behind. The driver of the Honda failed to allow the bus to merge and passed it, almost striking the front
driver’s side as it cut in front of the bus. The Honda then veered right (west) and drove off the roadway and onto the sidewalk and driveway at 2417 N.W. Ninth Ave., striking multiple children.

After the crash occurred, the vehicle accelerated and fled the area southbound.

At the time, six-year-old Andrea Fleming and five-year-old Kylie Jones were pronounced deceased on scene. Draya Fleming, Laziyah Stukes, Johnathan Carter and Audre Fleming were transported to Broward Health Medical Center.

Physical evidence on scene and information available led detectives to identify the vehicle involved. A description of the vehicle was released among law enforcement agencies and was located at 2512 N.W. Ninth Lane in Wilton Manors. The vehicle had damage consistent with being involved in this crash. The front bumper was also missing from the vehicle, which was located at the scene of the crash.

On Dec. 28, 2021, Sean Charles Greer was located by BSO V.I.P.E.R. (Violence Intervention Proactive Enforcement Response) detectives and arrested. Greer confessed to his involvement in the crash. He faces two counts of leaving the scene of an accident involving death, two counts of leaving the scene of an accident involving serious bodily injury, two counts of leaving the scene of an accident involving injuries, tampering with evidence, four counts of driving without a license causing death and/or serious bodily injuries and driving with a suspended license. At the time of the hit-and-run, Greer was also on probation for burglary of a dwelling in Broward County.

Greer faces an additional charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving death.
