Ras Acevedo, who saw the crash happen, told CBS4 that the male driver and a female passenger of the Infiniti took off running after the accident.
Acevedo told the station he followed.
“We found him in an abandoned warehouse,” he said. “We found the guy. Luckily there was a security guard in there and I helped the security guard make sure he didn’t leave. And then, luckily, Hialeah Police showed up.”
No details about the crash, including whether there were any arrests, were released Sunday night.
