Hit and Run Driver with 42 tickets lets his Mother Take the Rap

A college student from Paoli, Chester County, is in a coma more than 1,000 miles from home after a hit-and-run driver plowed into Eliza Gresh in Miami, authorities say. The teen was crossing the street on April 27 when police say a hit and run driver plowed into Gresh. Police were looking for the car, a Mercedes Benz, and the driver, Luis Moya, 24.

The car showed up at an auto body shop a week later, but not with Luis. Behind the wheel was Moya’s mom, Zoila. She told the shop owner she had gotten into an accident, but the shop owner recognized the car from police descriptions and called investigators.

Police took Zoila into custody and got in touch with Luis Moya through his mother and told him if he did not turn himself in, they would arrest his mother and charge her with filing false and fraudulent insurance claims. Moya told them to go ahead and arrest her.

Luis Moya has received 42 traffic tickets in the last five years, including tickets for reckless and careless driving.
