FLORIDA CITY, FLA. (WSVN) - - Police are pleading for the public’s help after a man was struck and killed in Florida City.

Miami homicide detectives said Calvin Bryant was trying to cross the street along the 1200 block of Northwest Eighth Avenue on December 29.

Bryant was hit and the driver fled the scene.

“The subject vehicle fled the scene of the accident, did not stop to render any aid, and ultimately, the victim succumbed to his injuries,” said Miami-Dade Traffic Homicide Det. Jeffery Childers. “We’re asking for the community’s help, those that may have seen something or heard something, to please call the 471-TIPS.”

Wednesday morning detectives stopped car after car handing out flyers with the victims name and picture, urging people to call police if they know anything about the driver who struck and killed Bryant.

7News spoke Bryant’s brother over a phone call, and he wants to know why the driver didn’t stop to call 911.

“Just heartless to leave an individual out there that did nothing to you,” He said.

Eventually someone saw Bryant lying on the street alive but badly injured.

Police said he was taken to Jackson South Community Hospital. He later died from his injuries on January 14.

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 reward.
