Florida Keys woman arrested on DUI charges following two hit-and-run crashes

SUMMERLAND KEY, Fla. – A Summerland Key woman was arrested Thursday after hitting two cars on U.S. 1 and leaving the scene after both crashes, authorities said.

Deputies responded to the crash around 4 p.m. Thursday when a woman reported a Lexus SUV tried to pass her vehicle on the right and left before rear-ending the victim’s vehicle near Mile Marker 21.5.

A short time later, another rear-end, hit-and-run was reported near Mile Marker 17. That victim also described a Lexus SUV as the suspect vehicle.

The Lexus was stopped near Mile Marker 10.

The driver was identified as 62-year-old Debra Sue Bond.

Authorities with the Monroe County Sherriff’s Office said Bond’s driver’s license was permanently revoked after four previous DUIs, including a DUI that caused injury and property damage.

Bond was taken to jail.

She is being charged with DUI, hit-and-run, careless driving, failure to report a crash, driving with a revoked license and multiple other infractions.
