Woman transported after hit and run crash in Hialeah

HIALEAH, FLA. (WSVN) - A woman has been transported to the hospital after a hit and run crash in Hialeah.

The 48-year-old woman was taken to a local hospital following a crash in the area of Northwest 79th Street and 42nd Avenue, early Monday morning.

The driver of a Leon Medical Center van said the hit and run driver also crashed into his vehicle before taking off.

“At 6 a.m., I was driving through this intersection in Hialeah,” said Rene Hernandez in Spanish, who was behind the wheel of the van. “That’s when a silver Dodge RAM truck crashed into this black Nissan car. It crosses to the other side of the road and hits me, fleeing from the scene towards South Le Jeune Road.”

It remains unclear what injuries the woman sustained from the crash.

The roads were temporarily shut down but have since reopened.

The incident remains under investigation by Hialeah Police.
