Woman killed trying to confront driver
by UPI

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Authorities in Florida were searching for a van Monday that struck and killed a woman who tried to confront the driver after an accident.

The van dragged the woman for miles before leaving her dead on the road Sunday night, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.

"I don't think there are words that would describe someone who would do this," Mike Jachles, spokesman for the Broward Sheriff's Office told the Sun-Sentinel.

Family members told the newspaper the dead woman was Sandra Hall, 44, a mother of two from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Hall and another person were involved in an accident with the van Sunday night and when the van didn't stop, Hall chased it in her vehicle.

When traffic was backed up, she got out of her car and stood in the road to stop the van, but it hit her and dragged her for several miles, Jachles said.

"This was a property damage crash that escalated to costing someone their life," Jachles said to the Sun-Sentinel. "We wouldn't encourage anyone to confront someone like that. Call 911, the dispatcher will tell you what to do."

Police were treating Hall's death as a homicide.
