William Desvergers Charged With Hit and Run

27-year-old William Desvergers, of Pompano, a lifelong Broward County resident was charged with fleeing the scene of a crash, tampering with evidence and driving without a license, according to Broward police records. Desvergers struck and killed Claude Michaud, 62 when Michaud was walking along the side of North Federal Highway late last summer. Desvergers was driving a 1993 Ford Bronco which was altered by Desvergers to disguise its identity and conceal the hit and run accident. Desvergers was driving with a suspended license when the accident occurred. After fleeing the scene of the accident and parking his vehicle in a nearby Walmart parking lot, Desvergers returned to the scene of the accident on foot and pretended to be an eyewitness, blaming another person for the hit and run.

Even though Desvergers is not being charged with being at fault for causing the accident, he is facing much more serious charges than if he simply stayed at the scene. The penalties for leaving the scene of an accident after causing someone’s death is a felony that carries with it up to 15 years in prison and $10,000 in fines. In addition, Desvergers faces the revocation of his driver’s license.

If you have a loved one who has been killed by another person, a wrongful death has occurred and you are may be entitled to sue the insurance company of the hit and run driver or other parties. Call the Maus Law Firm today for a free consultation.
