Surveillance released of possible hit-and-run vehicle
MIAMI (WSVN) -- Police have released surveillance video of the possible vehicle that struck a man and left him in critical condition.
Police are asking the public for any information regarding the driver that struck 70-year-old Charlie Kimball,
The surveillance footage was released Wednesday. It features a vehicle driving north on Northwest Seventh Avenue, at 9:17 p.m. on July, 16t, the night Kimball was hit and left for dead. "You're looking at Seventh Avenue, looking northbound and what's gonna come in the frame now is a vehicle of interest that we believe might have struck the pedestrian," said Miami Police Sergeant Luis Taborda.
The black sedan seen on video might be the possible getaway car seen from two different angles on surveillance. Police believe it could be the driver that hit Kimball. "They originally told us that is was a black four-door vehicle with a pointy front-end," said Taborda. "From this angle, you can't really see it too much of the vehicle other then the doors. The color matched the description that they gave us."
Kimball was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital in extremely critical condition. According to his family, he went into surgery again due to the severity of his injuries.
Taborda said they are trying to find the hit-and-run driver, even though Kimble may have been jay-walking. "The guy that's gonna go to jail is the guy that struck this person. Didn't even stop to render aid. He just became the offender of a felony. This guy is gonna get caught," he said.
Police are looking for a black, four-door sedan that was in the Northwest Seventh Avenue area, Monday night.
