WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A bill aiming to crackdown on hit-and-run drivers is a signature away from becoming law.
The bill is now heading to Gov. Rick Scott's desk after both the House and Senate unanimously approved it.
The bill guarantees a four-year jail sentence for hit-and-run drivers who leave someone dead.
Anyone who leaves the scene of an accident that causes injury would face a minimum three-year license suspension.
"This bill is definitely going to make Florida a better, safer place to live," said Rep. Irv Slosberg, D-Boca Raton.
The House voted 118-0 to pass the bill on Tuesday.
