MIAMI (CBSMiami) — North Miami Police are searching for the driver of a car that slammed into three people near a bus stop in North Miami.
Miami-Dade Fire crews said the car ran a stop sign then slammed into the bus stop near NE 125th Street and NE 12th Avenue on Friday morning.
Eleven year old Chelsea Romald was waiting with her grandmother when she says she saw the car coming straight towards them.
“I heard eeeeechhhhh,” said Romald. “Very scary, very, very scary…I think they were speeding.”
Chelsea’s grandmother was one of the victims taken to the hospital.
“My grandmother is in the hospital and I got scraped,” said Romald.
Another victim was pinned under the car for a time.
One of the victims was airlifted to the hospital as a trauma alert. Two others were transported by ground.
North Miami Police said there were two people in the car at the time. Once the crash happened, they ran off. Police said the driver and passenger are between 15 and 19 years old.
Lori Agostini said she tried to tail the two men who were in the car.
“They jumped out of the car .. I called 911 then I went after them…And I followed them as far as I could,” said Agostini.
Officers are searching for them in the area.
Susana Miranda feels lucky she avoided catastrophe. She was just seconds away from the bus stop.
“Jesus blessed me…I’m alive,” said Miranda.
Officials told CBS4’s Joan Murray that the two who were most injured are suffering from non-life threatening injuries.
