Authorities have arrested a man in connection to a hit-and-run in Wilton Manors that left two children dead and sent four others to the hospital.

27-year-old Sean Charles Greer was taken into custody by Broward Sheriff detectives on Tuesday. Officials say he has confessed to being involved in the accident that took place Monday afternoon.

Detectives said Greer sped around a Broward Transit bus, seemed to lose control and overcorrected onto a driveway where the children were walking with an adult relative.

The deceased victims were identified as 6-year-old Andrea Fleming and 5-year-old Paris Kylie Jones.

The surviving victims were identified as 10-year-old Johnathan Carter, 2-year-old Audre Fleming, 9-year-old Draya Fleming and 9-year-old Laziyah Stokes. They were all transported to Broward Health Medical Center for treatment.

He faces a list of charges, including two counts of leaving the scene of an accident involving death, tampering with evidence and driving with a suspended license. He is also on probation for burglary of a dwelling in Broward County.

A GoFundMe page has been created for Jones’ family to help with funeral arrangements and other expenses. If you would like to make a donation, click here.
