Miami, Florida – David Plazas was accused of a deadly hit-and-run crash in Bal Harbour nearly a year ago. On Tuesday morning he appeared before a judge.
According to the officer’s reports, Plazas was charged with leaving the scene of a crime involving death after he reportedly struck and killed 14-year-old Ethan Gordon, who was riding a bike, on August 22nd, 2020.
“No family should ever have to endure the death of a loved one, much less a young child who had the whole world ahead of him. Ethan was a wonderful child,” said Barry Wax, an attorney for the Gordon family.
Plazas is being held on a 2.000.000$ bond. If he posts bail, he will be placed on house arrest. He’s been ordered to have no contact with Gordon’s family.
