Witness catches runaway driver
Did you hear about the couple who were slammed off their tandem bike by a hit-and-run driver a few weeks ago in Homestead? A witness chased down the fleeing motorist and made him come back to face the music. This hero ruined his van in the process, and the Everglades Bicycle Club has started a fund to help him get new wheels. The club also has rallied around its injured fellow members, organizing help relays to visit their home and see that they get whatever they need while they recuperate. The story's told in more detail in New Times. Just scroll down to the second item.
