Woman Arrested In Connection With Hialeah Hit-And-Run
Last week the Hialeah Police Department arrested a woman in connection to a hit-and-run crash on October 25th that left one woman dead.
NBC Miami reports that Natasha Boone, 22, of Dania Beach is facing the charge of first-degree murder after her van struck another woman, Norky Contreras, 42 at an area pawn on the night of October 25th.
According to the arrest report, the vehicle Contreras was traveling in was rear-ended by Boothe’s gold Chrysler van and kept going before stopping at the Happy Pawn Shop located at 1085 West 29th Street.
Contreras attempted to confront Boothe, who backed her van into a chain-link fence and pinning her. As Boothe tried to pull away and leave, Contreras stepped out in front of Boothe’s vehicle. Rather than stopping, Boothe attempted to run over Contreras with her van.
To avoid getting hit, Contreras jumped on to the hood of the van. Boone continued driving with the woman on the hood of her vehicle for an additional eight blocks before Contreras’ body fell off the hood of the van. Boothe drove over Contreras and then fled the scene.
According to Hialeah Detective Joseph Elosegui, Boothe had been driving at a high rate of speed through the busy streets before Contreras fell off the hood and was run over. Contreras suffered “traumatic injuries throughout her body,” Elosegui said.
Contreras later died as a result of the injuries she suffered in the incident.
Police were able to find Boothe after accessing video surveillance footage from the pawnshop.
According to court documents, Boothe’s license was suspended on October 6th after she failed to appear in court for a previous traffic citation.
