“You just don’t leave a human being on the side of the road like that. That person maybe has kids, has a family or a wife,” said Morino.
Miami-Dade police say the fatal accident happened around 5 a.m. when a pedestrian was struck.
“This is very sad. It’s very tragic. Cars drive here without control, very fast. Speeding,” said Stephanie Hernandez.
“He was speeding up like crazy,” says a man involved in the accident we witnessed. He says he had to swerve into palm trees in order to avoid being hit by another driver. He was just minutes from his house when the accident happened. The driver who hit him never stopped.
“There’s always some crazy guy trying to show off,” he said.
“It makes me feel terrible actually. You cannot trust humanity.. you’d think someone would stop and see what happened to the other guy,” the man involved said.MORE NEWS: Six People Sent To The Hospital After Fiery Van Crash Fire On Turnpike
