In the newest episode of CSI: Miami a woman is found dead behind the wheel of a car, but Horatio and the team have reason to believe her mysterious car accident is actually a homicide.
According to CSI Files sources, "Collision" takes us straight into a nerve-wracking opening. An unidentified woman is behind the wheel of her car. Her eyes are fixed on the rear view mirror, and she's pleading, to whoever she's seeing, to stop. Despite all of this the struggle continues and as she drives, she keeps looking back. Is someone in the back seat of her car or is another car chasing her? The woman slams on the brakes in an attempt to free herself from whoever's tormenting her but her car suddenly spirals out of control and slams into a power pole, killing her almost instantly.
Horatio is sure of something when he arrives at the scene – the woman, identified as Angela Ross, was running away from someone. Delko and Ryan examine the car to find out a section of the glass on the windshield was pulled back. But the collision couldn't have caused that. The CSIs find fingerprints, run them through the system and they come back to a Howard Beech, who is in the system for a DUI in Michigan. Could he have been the one chasing Angela?
Horatio talks to Howard, but the man says that while he was at the scene of the accident, he was merely trying to help. He was driving home when he saw the car, pulled over and called 911. He peeled the window back to see if he could save Angela, but it was clear that she was dead, so he took off. Horatio wonders why Howard didn't wait for the paramedics, but Howard admits he'd had a couple of drinks, and considering the DUI he'd gotten in Michigan, he didn't want to risk it. Horatio also wonders what Howard is doing in Miami when the terms of his parole don't allow him to leave his home state. Howard, however, got permission from his parole officer to come down to Florida and visit his mother. Horatio lets Howard go, but there's still something about him he doesn't like.
Calleigh and Ryan find a diamond in Angela's possession, but the jewel is still registered to the store where it came from. The CSIs visit Durant Jewels and talk to Chris Kaiser, the store's owner. Chris tells them the diamond was stolen just the night before, and in fact belongs to a necklace – both are worth over 4 million dollars. Calleigh and Ryan have reason to believe Angela stole the necklace, but when they show Chris a picture of her he tells them the woman can't be a thief. Her name is Barbara Sommers, and she works for the store. Could Angela's double identity have something to do with her murder? Chris gives the CSIs her home address.
Horatio and Ryan visit Angela's home to make another startling discovery. An 8-year-old boy named Danny has been hiding inside the cupboard, and he looks terrified. When the CSIs open the door he tries to make a run for it but Horatio stops him, assuring him they're the good guys. Danny's emotional state tells Horatio he may know something about Angela's death or even who was chasing after her the night before, but his limited range in vocabulary says the young boy may have a developmental disorder.
Danny Sommers is actually Angela's son, and the social worker he's placed with reassures Horatio Danny isn't developmentally disabled, but merely traumatized. Horatio thinks Danny has been trained not to say much – could he be the victim of abuse? All they know about him is his father is dead and now, so is his mother. That ought to traumatize any 8-year-old boy, but Horatio thinks Danny's trauma took place long ago. Danny could be the key to unlocking the mystery of Angela's death, but how do you get a witness account from a child who's been trained not to talk?
