FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A 27-year-old Florida man accused in a hit-and-run crash that killed two children and injured four others caused a disturbance during his first court appearance, hours after sheriff's deputies arrested him.

Detectives say physical evidence led them to Sean Charles Greer. He was arrested Tuesday night, a day after the crash in Wilton Manors.

During a court appearance Wednesday, deputies led Greer away after he objected to attending the proceeding.

Officials say Greer veered around a transit bus and crashed into the children.

According to WPTV, investigators said Greer swerved to go around a Broward County Transit bus and drove off the road and onto a sidewalk, hitting the kids and fleeing the scene.

He was ordered held without bond on two probation violations.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office said Greer faces the following charges:

  • Two counts of leaving the scene of an accident involving death
  • Two counts of leaving the scene of an accident involving serious bodily injury
  • Two counts of leaving the scene of an accident involving injuries
  • Tampering with evidence
  • Four counts of driving without a license causing death and/or serious bodily injuries
  • Driving with a suspended license

Andrea Fleming, 6, and Kylie Jones, 5, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Four other children, identified as Draya Fleming, 9, Laziyah Stokes, 9, Johnathan Carter, 10, and 2-year-old Audre Fleming, were transported to Broward Health Medical Center.

Scott Sutton at WPTV first reported this story.
