MIAMI - A 60-year-old man is dead after police say the driver of a Ferrari struck his car early Saturday morning, and then left the scene.

The incident happened at 12:30 a.m. Saturday on northbound S.R. 93, just north of Northwest 138th Street in Miami.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the driver of a red 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia was traveling north on S.R. 93 in the center lane, north of NW 138th Street.

A blue Hyundai was traveling north of NW 138th Street in the center lane, in front of the Ferrari. A third vehicle, a white Saturn, was also traveling north on S.R. 93 in the right-center lane, ahead of both the Ferrari and the Hyundai.

According to FHP, the Ferrari approached and struck the back of the Hyundai, causing the Hyundai move into the right-center lane, striking the rear of the Saturn. The Hyundai then entered the grass median and rolled over before coming to a stop on the shoulder.

FHP said the Saturn rotated and came to a stop on the grass shoulder ahead of the Hyundai.

The Ferrari rotated to the left after striking the Hyundai, before entering the left shoulder and coming to a stop in the grass median, FHP said.

According to FHP, the driver of the Ferrari failed to render aid and took off prior to the arrival of any first responders.

Authorities said the driver of the Hyundai, 60-year-old Jorge Arrojas of Southwest Ranches, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Miguel Larrieu, the 62-year-old man who rode as a passenger inside the Hyundai with Arrojas, was taken to Jackson Trauma with serious injuries, according to FHP.

The driver of the Saturn, 42-year-old Fulvio Davila, suffered minor injuries as a result of the crash.

A description of the driver of the Ferrari was not available, but it is reported that police do have a person of interest.

FHP said the investigation is ongoing at this time.
