Just An Accident Stop Hit-and-Runs—a nonprofit organization founded in 2016— is dedicated to reducing and ultimately eliminating Hit-and-Run fatalities in the state of Florida and providing a positive and safe environment for businesses, families, residents, and others in all communities. In 2016, Miami-Dade and Broward County had the highest amount of hit-and-run accidents in Florida. Dr. Yolanda Green-Samuel, Founder, created this needed non-profit organization after the death of her oldest brother Eugene in 2014. She understands that she can never bring her brother back, but she has been tasked with the purpose of ensuring that other families don’t feel the same loss, anger and pain her family has had to endure.
“No Leads, No Answer- Unacceptable! I lost my big brother, someone I loved my entire life to a hit-and-run driver. Who is next? It doesn’t matter until it happens to you!” said Dr. Green-Samuel. “This event is not just for my brother, it’s for those who don’t have a voice, but life still lives on. We’re celebrating life and bringing awareness about this heart-rending killer that we hope to eliminate one-day.” she stated.
