Weston man sends two to hospital in DUI hit and run
An impaired motorist who struck a couple last week as they walked their dogs in Weston now faces charges of DUI and leaving the scene of a crash causing serious injuries.
Shortly before 9 p.m. February 2, Keith and Penny Grumer were walking their two dogs in the gated community of Weston Hills when they were struck by a car driven by Irving Goldstein, also from Weston.
Broward Sheriff’s Office traffic homicide detectives said Goldstein was heading west on Weston Hills Boulevard when he drifted to the right as he approached Weston Hills Drive. Goldstein failed to maintain control of his 2008 Infiniti G375 and struck the Grumers who were walking on the sidewalk. The car came to rest on the golf course adjacent to the roadway.
Witnesses said Goldstein got out of the car and left the scene on foot. He was later found wandering the neighborhood and apprehended by deputies. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue rushed the Grumers to Broward General Medical Center (BGMC) in critical condition. Goldstein was taken to BGMC as well for treatment of minor injuries. Upon his release from the hospital Wednesday morning, he was taken into custody on two counts of DUI with serious bodily injury and two counts of leaving the scene of a crash involving personal injuries.
Keith and Penny Grumer remain hospitalized.
