Mother in critical condition after hit-and-run in Northeast Miami-Dade

NORTHEAST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A young mother is now fighting for her life after she was struck by a hit-and-run driver in Northeast Miami-Dade.

Twenty-four-year-old Beatrice Clou is now in the intensive care unit at Jackson Memorial Hospital after she was struck, Sunday evening, near Northeast 117th Street and Second Avenue.

Clou, a single mother of a 3-year-old girl, is currently on a ventilator.

She was with her best friend Emmanuelle Moise when she was struck. Moise is still heartbroken over the situation and is hoping someone will come forward with information.

“I don’t know why. I don’t know if it’s a man or a woman,” Moise said fighting back tears. “You take my best friend — my sister. Now she’s fighting at the hospital for her life. Why? Why?”

Officials are searching for a 2016 or 2017 metallic blue Chevrolet Camaro with front end damage.

“Go to the police. Act like a woman or a man, you know? Just say, ‘I did it,'” said Moise, “because she’s the best people that I know.”

Miami-Dade Police could be seen, Tuesday afternoon, passing out flyers in an attempt to find the driver who hit Clou.

“We’re passing out flyers ’cause I’m very hopeful that I will be able to find this hit-and-run vehicle, for which it did not stay on the scene, continued on and did not render any aid whatsoever to this victim,” said Miami-Dade Police Detective Wanda Milian.

If you have any information on this hit-and-run, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
