If they cannot identify you as the driver of the vehicle, this is going to be your only hope here. If the car was registered to you and they saw you getting out of the drivers seat when you ran, I am afraid it is going to be pretty difficult to challenge that. The only other challenge you have is the proof of the speeding and if they got you on radar then they had probable cause
for the stop. Running really did hurt your case, even if you did not have the keys in your possession when they found you if they can testify they saw you exiting or driving the vehicle and they positively identify you as the driver. The identification, from everything you said, would be your only real challenge.
As far as not reading you your Miranda rights
, they did not have to read you those unless they were going to take a statement from you regarding the offense. If they did take any statements from you without reading you your rights, then those statements could not be introduced against you in court
and any evidence gained from those statements would be inadmissible as well.
You are entitled to an attorney on these charges and your attorney is going to have to check the evidence to see if they can identify you as being behind the wheel and if they cannot do so then your attorney can move to suppress the identification as a means to get the charges dismissed.
