MIAMI (CBSMiami) – One man was injured during a police chase of a stolen car in Miami Shores.
Miami-Dade police said their officers were in pursuit of a stolen white Audi which hit a man on a scooter on Biscayne Boulevard near NE 106th Street.
Surveillance video from a nearby business shows the man on the scooter being followed by the Audi.
Chopper4 over the scene spotted Miami-Dade Fire Rescue attending to the injured man who had a brace on his right leg. He was then loaded into an ambulance and taken to a nearby hospital.
The pursuing officers lost track of the Audi. It was later located, unoccupied, at Pinetree Drive and NE 113th Street. Police went door to door, asking residents if they had seen the person driving the car.
“I think it’s horrible, you know, that’s all people do these days, ride around, hit people and keep going,” said Angela Johnson who lives in the area.
“Well it’s typical of the big city now, nobody cares about anything,” said Bob Liepett.
Police are now trying to determine why the man on the scooter was targeted.
Anyone with information that can help police is urged to call Crime Stoppers (305) 471-TIPS (8477).
