News: Woman arrested for hit-and-run that killed pedestrian in Fort Lauderdale

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – A woman is facing charges for a crash that killed a pedestrian in Fort Lauderdale two years ago, WSVN reports.

The suspect, 36-year-old Tarah Sol, allegedly left the scene after the incident that occurred Oct. 26, 2019.  Authorities said she was driving a Hyundai Sonata at about 3 a.m. when she struck 35-year-old Jonathan Frederick as he walked across Broward Boulevard at Northwest Seventh Avenue.

In 2020, there was a break in the investigation when detectives acted on a tip that Sol had been the driver in the fatal incident. They were able to use her phone to ascertain that she had been in the area at the time, which helped link her to the crash.

Sol was apprehended on a fraud charge in Palm Beach last weekend and will be taken to Broward County to face charges in connection with the death of Frederick. She will be charged with failure to stop at an accident involving death and tampering with evidence.
