FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – The man responsible for a hit-and-run that claimed the life of a motorcyclist in Fort Lauderdale on Wednesday has been arrested.

According to a report by NBC Miami, the crash occurred in the southbound lanes of the South Federal Highway near Southeast 6th Street at about 1 a.m.

Investigators say 34-year-old Stephen Sherburne was behind the wheel of the black 2022 Ford Edge that slammed into the rear of the motorcyclist.
