Injured couple seek hit-run charges
For reasons unknown, Miami-Dade police have not filed hit-and-run charges against the driver who hit bicyclists Melanie Ashby and Wayne Phelps and fled the scene. The police officer appears to have ignored the fact that the reason the 21-year-old driver was present when she arrived was that a passerby, farmworker Jean Donatien, chased him down and brought him back to the scene. Lesser charges were filed, The Miami Herald reports in a feature about the accident and the good citizen who came to the riders' aid.
