Woman thrown from truck run over
MIAMI (WSVN) -- Police are searching for a driver who threw a woman from the passenger seat of a pickup truck and then ran her over.
The incident happened in the area of Northwest 10th Street and First Avenue on Tuesday. The driver sped away, leaving the victim with life-threatening injuries. "What we do know is that once she hit the street, the rear tire of this pickup truck actually ran over her, and at this moment she's in very critical condition," said Miami Police Sgt. Freddie Cruz.
Police said the man was driving a dark-colored Dodge Ram with an extended cab and a missing tailgate with several dents and scratches. "Someone has to know something. This happened at 2:45 in the afternoon. I'm sure someone saw something, a partial tag or something," said Cruz. "We need the community's help. Please help us."
