DAVIE (CBSMiami) – Police have asked for the public’s help in finding the driver responsible for a deadly hit and run accident in Davie.
Just before midnight, two men were attempting to cross US 441 at Griffin Road when one was hit. Witnesses said one man stopped on the median but the other dashed across the lanes and was hit by a red car.
Holly Wilson, who as at the Shell gas station on the corner, said she remembers the man very clearly.
“I actually saw him walking to the station he was a little intoxicated and his friend was holding him,” she said.
Wilson said after the accident she knew he wasn’t going to make it.
“I was standing in front of the Shell station and was glancing over to the right and saw a man walking up to the curb. I saw him fall and heard a loud smack on the ground and I knew that he was gone because he wasn’t moving or getting up,” said Wilson.
Robbie Evans said he had no idea what had happened, but from what he heard he knew it was bad.
“We heard a boom, turned around, this guy, this guy was laying in the street so I so I went over, I went over there,” said Evans. “The blood was everywhere. The blood was everywhere. You know I checked his pulse.”
