KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Outraged motorists in Kissimmee chased down a driver who police say hit a bicyclist and kept going.
Police arrested 18-year-old Leonor Paulino Friday after drivers gave chase and boxed her in after 69-year-old Errol V- Welsh was struck by a car while he was crossing a Kissimmee street.
Welsh was hurled into the windshield and slid off, suffering minor injuries. Witnesses say the car that hit him sped away.
Two other drivers chased the car, which eventually got stuck behind traffic.
Witnesses say the woman's mother was in the passenger seat and that Paulino was hysterical.
Paulino was charged with leaving the scene of a vehicle accident with injuries. She was also cited her for failing to exhibit a drivers license upon demand.
She was booked into Osceola County Jail. Welsh was treated for his injuries at Florida Hospital Kissimmee.
