Pedestrian Injured in Miami Gardens Hit and Run
Hit and run accidents involving pedestrians can be all too common. Earlier this week a pedestrian was injured in a hit and run crash that happened in Miami Gardens.
In a report that appeared on the CBS Local website in Miami, witnesses to the incident indicated that the man had been seen leaving a McDonald’s restaurant located near NW 183rd Street and NW 47th Avenue when he was struck by a gray Nissan. The street was left littered with auto parts from the vehicle, including a portion of the car’s bumper.
The injured man was transported to an area hospital to be treated for his injuries. No word has been released on his condition.
Anyone involved in an accident is required by Florida law to stop and render aid wherever possible. It’s considered a criminal offense not to do so and fleeing the scene when someone is seriously hurt –or worse is inexcusable. Even if the driver had been drinking and driving or had outstanding warrants for their arrest, makes this incident even more serious. Once the driver is caught, and it’s just a matter of time before they do, they will be facing high fines, the loss of their driver’s license and insurance as well as jail time.
