Child killed by car in West Palm; crowd chases driver and beats him

A motorist who hit and killed a 3-year-old boy on Saturday was chased down and beaten by a group of men who saw the crash, the Sheriff’s Office reported.

The boy, ArMante Williams, had been standing on the side of Benoist Farms Road in West Palm Beach with one of his cousins. ArMante darted into traffic and was hit about 12:40 p.m., according to the Sheriff’s Office.

More than a dozen men, friends of the boy’s father, saw the crash and stopped the car about a half block away, sheriff’s spokesman Paul Miller said.

Miller said deputies were sorting through conflicting stories and weren’t sure Saturday afternoon how the men stopped the car.

The men dragged Honorio Martinez out of the driver’s seat and punched him in the head several times, Miller said.

This piece of crap gets even stupider:
After the beating, Martinez walked back to see how the child was doing, then said he was going to leave because he doesn’t have a driver’s license, Miller said.

The group of men pounced on him again, Miller said.

I wish they would have given him one for me.
Williams told the TV reporters that Martinez deserved the beating.

“You just run the kid over and then try to leave?” he said. “He should’ve gotten worse than that.”
