A new trial will be scheduled after a mistrial was declared by a judge in Collier County Friday for a deadly hit-and-run case. A man stood trial, accused of killing a 13-year-old boy in an East Naples crash in 2017.

“This is a horrible tragedy,” Defense Attorney Lee Hollander said. “We just don’t believe there was a crime. The state does, and that’s what we’re going to hash out.”
