Watch: Driver Flees Car Crash Despite Sledgehammer Being Swung At Him

Hit-and-run driver tried to get away — then a man took out a sledge hammer, video shows | Miami Herald

Miami police said there were no injuries at the scene and despite the man's attempt to flee he was taken into custody.

But cops warned others not to repeat the actions of the vigilante drivers who ganged up on the SUV should they find themselves in a similar situation, and dial 911 instead.

A insane scene unfolded in Miami on Sunday when a driver tried to leave the scene of a auto accident.

Lagutenko appeared to be high on narcotics, according to his arrest report, WPLG-TV reported.

It's there that the vehicle comes to a stop again when another SUV blocks the lane.

The incident happened on Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 36th Street.

In a video from the second crash scene, a man could be seen swinging a hammer at the windows of Lagutenko's SUV, breaking some of the glass.

Cellphone video captured the intense confrontation between an alleged hit-and-run driver and onlookers who tried to stop him from leaving and used a sledgehammer to bust his SUV windows.

Miami Police said officers pursued Lagutenko on Federal Highway, near 48th Street.

Witnesses said they were shocked that Lagutenko wouldn't stay at the scene.

Police said Lagutenko appeared to be under the influence of drugs when he was stopped. He was issued a $5,000 bond on Monday, March 12.

Lagutenko was later arrested and faces charges for leaving the scene of an accident, eluding police and reckless driving.

He had been ticketed 18 times over the last eight years, according to court records, the Miami Herald reported.

Police also urged people not to take the law into their own hands.
