Broward Sheriff's Office deputies arrested a drunk driver who killed a motorcyclist Friday night in Pompano Beach, then fled the scene and tried to cover up the crime, according to the BSO’s report.
At 9:36 p.m., Nadia Verdoni, 42, of Pompano Beach, was driving a Ford SUV northbound in the left turn lane of North Federal Highway attempting to turn left onto Northeast Fourth Street.
Verdonia turned on a solid green traffic signal into the path of the southbound traffic, the BSO report said. Benjamin Pirofsky, 30, of Coral Springs, who was traveling south on a motorcycle, attempted to stop but struck the right rear of the suspect's car and was ejected by the impact. Pirofsky died at the scene of the crash.
Nadia Verdoni fled and BSO deputies found her at home covering her damaged car with a tarp, the report said. Verdoni was determined to have been driving under the influence of alcohol and was arrested. She will be charged with DUI manslaughter, leaving the scene involving death and tampering with evidence, deputies said.
