A deputy with the Martin County Sheriff’s Office was investigating reports of a crash involving a child when his car was hit by an unlicensed driver over the weekend.

The crash happened over the weekend along SE 47th Avenue and SE Field Street. According to the Martin County sheriff’s office, the deputy was on the scene and was investigating a crash where an unlicensed driver hit a child on a bicycle.

The 14-year-old victim on the bicycle who was involved in the initial crash had non-life-threatening injuries and was flown to St. Mary’s Medical Center, sheriff’s officials said.

According to deputies, as the deputy was on the scene questioning the driver of the first crash, 49-year-old Amelia Mericel Miranda De La Rosa, a second unlicensed driver in a Ford F-250 pickup truck, crashed into the back of the deputy’s marked patrol SUV.

While on the scene, a second unlicensed driver, 29-year-old Angel Palesio-Monson, hit the deputy’s marked patrol vehicle.

Investigators said the driver who hit the deputy’s vehicle, 29-year-old Angel Palesio-Monson, told deputies he didn’t see the marked patrol car or the parking lights. Palesio-Monson said he was returning home from a roofing job in Wellington where he cut his finger.

According to the sheriff’s office, he told the deputy he drank the proverbial “two beers” to help him cope with the pain. Palesio-Monson said he has never had a driver’s license, deputies said.

Palesio-Monson who hit the deputy’s SUV was transported to Cleveland Clinic Martin South Hospital after deputies said they saw he had a cut on his hand. He told deputies he was injured while doing a roofing job and had been driving with the wound open; and that he may have blacked out.

De La Rosa and Palesio-Monson were charged with driving without a license. At the same time, Palesio-Monson also has a pending charge of DUI after admitting to having two beers before leaving a roofing job to help manage pain from a cut he suffered on his finger.

Per investigators. De La Rosa has previously been charged with driving while unlicensed.

This case is quite aggravating, neither one of these drivers has a license, and yet charges are pending. The female driver was not injured, why was she not arrested? As for the male driver, why not have a corrections officer stand by and call for a deputy to arrest them when they are released from the hospital?
