Teen Jogger Killed In Coconut Grove

COCONUT GROVE – (CBS4) – Miami Police are investigating the death of an 18-year-old high school athlete who was struck by a woman driving a Jeep in Coconut Grove Saturday night.

Police say the teen had been jogging in the area of Virginia Street and West Trade Avenue when he was struck and killed.

Renee Sherman said she ran outside her Coconut Grove home as soon as she heard the crash.

“I looked outside and there was a person dead center of my apartment lying on the ground,” Sherman said. “The woman who was driving the Jeep, I guess they were doing a sobriety or drug test.”

The case is being investigated as a possible DUI manslaughter case. The teen’s identity was not immediately released.
