A driver in a Miami hit and run turned herself into police months after the fatal pedestrian accident occurred. In March of this year, a woman was walking in the neighborhood of Brickell when she was struck and killed by a drunken, negligent driver.
“All these months we wondered, how is it that the person can live with herself, knowing that she caused an accident, she caused a death,” the victim’s sister told CBS Miami.
Authorities found the 2010 Mazda G3 that killed the woman with a dented hood, shattered windshield, and a mirror hanging by a wire. Police said that witness accounts and evidence from the car is enough to charge her with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death.
“She wanted to live her life, she wanted to enjoy her life,” the victim’s sister stated. “My sister is not here. It’s a life that was lost. The person responsible should face whatever consequences are attached to that.”
