On Monday, January 24, 2022, Leonardo Gil Fraga, a TikTok celebrity and hospital worker, was killed in a hit-and-run after leaving the hospital on his motorcycle. The involved driver still must be found, and his family is demanding justice. A Florida hospital worker with over 100,000 TikTok followers was killed in a hit-and-run vehicle accident while ending his shift at Hialeah Hospital. Around 9:30 p.m., the 34-year-old man was riding his motorcycle home when he was hit by an SUV turning left at the crossing of East 8th Avenue and 21st Street in Hialeah. The car drove away from the incident, leaving the TikTok celebrity on the road. Gil’s aunt informed reporters in Miami that he was resting on the side of the street until a passing motorist noticed him and assisted him. He was finally sent to Jackson Memorial Hospital. However, people verified that Gil died because of his injuries. The SUV car that hit Gil is still on the loose, causing the entire family to seek for everyone’s assistance in identifying the suspect’s identity. However, Hialeah Police Lt. Eduardo Rodriguez explained that the CCTV evidence proved that the SUV driver did not give the TikTok celebrity a chance to stop at the intersection. The SUV driver might face significant charges shortly since Gil had the right of way. The family was broken even more after seeing the video, because Gil had never owned a motorbike until three months ago. The driver who fled the scene of the incident is still being sought by police. Lieutenant Rodriguez has appealed to the community for assistance.
