Homestead Family Mourns Loss Of Toddler Killed In Accident
HOMESTEAD (CBS4) – Friends and relatives of Alicia Eaddy are helping to support her after the loss of her two year old daughter Jamariah Miller.
“Oh Lord, why did it have to happen? Why didn’t you take me? I want my baby back,” sobbed Eaddy.
The toddler was hit by a car crossing busy Campbell Drive in Homestead Friday night.
Neighbors said she was out with family friends for dinner.
Relatives say Jamariah, nicknamed “Juicy”, was a very special child.
“Everybody loved her. She played with everyone in the neighborhood. We nicknamed her Juicy,” said Sherill Golden, the child’s aunt.
“I made her breakfast, played with her, she’s irreplaceable and will be missed,” said Jamariah’s uncle Melvin Baugh.
CBS Miami’s Al Sunshine asked Golden what questions the family had about the accident?
Sherill Golden explained “I don’t understand how she was hit. I don’t know the driver and don’t know why he didn’t stop,” said Golden.
Homestead police said no charges have been filed at this time. They have not released the driver’s name.
The family said they don’t have any insurance to pay for her medical bills and don’t have the financial ability to pay for Jamariahs’ funeral expenses.
