Officers On The Hunt For Hit And Run Driver

It seems unfathomable that anyone could hit another person and drive away from the scene of the accident. Even though getting into such an unfortunate situation may trigger the natural instinct to fight or flee, it should be resisted at all costs. To avoid facing the most serious charges, if someone hits a pedestrian, bicyclist, or even another vehicle, it is required that they stay at the scene of the accident until a law enforcement officer says that you can go. This is especially true if there are any serious injuries or worse involved.

Unfortunately, however, there are those who choose to flee the scene instead.

This appears to be what happened in Miami when was critically injured in a hit and run crash in northwest Miami-Dade on July 19th. In a story appearing on the NBC affiliate in Miami, police are searching for the person who struck 60-year-old Mayra Diaz in the area of Northwest 24th Street and Northwest 27th Avenue at approximately 9:20 p.m. 

Miami-Dade police are asking for the public’s help in finding the driver and vehicle – a black Nissan Titan pickup truck with the model year 2004 -2009. Investigators say that the truck sustained damage to the front bumper and is missing a headlight after having struck Diaz and leaving her in critical condition.
