A Teen Driver was Arrested After a Hit-and-Run Crash in Miami that Killed a Woman

On Saturday January 22, 2022, at the crossing of Northwest Third Street and 11th Avenue two women in a red car, who were both in their 60s, were rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital in critical condition. A 63-year-old woman was killed, and a friend was injured. The second lady is in serious condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital after suffering head injuries, a broken spine, a lacerated spleen, and hip fractures in the incident. Following a tragic hit-and-run collision in Miami’s Little Havana area, a 17-year-old was detained, and two additional suspects were identified by investigators, Miami police reported Thursday. Surveillance cameras at a nearby gas station captured video of the suspects, who police claimed were in a stolen white Land Rover that crashed with the 63-year-old woman’s vehicle. They suspect the Land Rover driver ran a stop sign before the fatal T-bone crash. According to the report, the victim’s vehicle then sideswiped two parked vehicles on the east side of the road prior to rear-ending another parked vehicle, resulting in a chain-reaction accident involving two additional parked cars. The 17-year-old teen appeared in juvenile court before a judge, and after the charges were read, his mother stated that she would hire her own attorney instead of accepting a court-appointed Public Defender. The state stated it was evaluating the case and that if they decided to make a “direct filing,” they could prosecute him as an adult. He has another hearing scheduled on February 16th.
