A woman and her three children were transported to the hospital by rescue crews after they were injured in a crash in Northwest Miami-Dade involving a stolen SUV, police said.
Miami-Dade Police and Fire Rescue units said they responded to the scene of the crash at the corner of Northwest 22nd Avenue and 66th Street, just after 2:10 p.m., Saturday.
Witnesses said a white BMW sedan was driving north along 22nd Avenue and had the green light when it was T-boned by a dark-colored Subaru SUV that was heading down 66th Street.
Police said the occupants of the BMW were the 36-year-old mother and her three children, ages 6, 10 and 11.
Investigators said the Subaru was stolen, and at least three people were inside at the time of the crash.
Cellphone video showed five children and two adults who appeared to have been involved in the crash covered in blood, as well as good Samaritans rendering aid.
Area resident Staci Clemons was shocked by the violent crash.
“One of the little boys’ face was split, so it’s real tragic,” she said.
Clemons said the woman had to be extricated from the BMW.
“The mother, I know one lady had to get cut out of the car, so it’s really bad,” she said.
The woman appeared to have suffered a broken arm.
Witnesses told police they saw two people get out of the Subaru and run away.
Police detectives and traffic investigators have responded to the scene. They placed several markers on the ground near the vehicles involved.
Paramedics transported the victims to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Officials said the mother’s condition is unknown, the 6-year-old is in critical but stable condition, and the other children are expected to be OK.
“We’ve gotta say prayers for them, and I really uphold, and I wish everybody else upholds, the prayers for those kids,” said Clemons.
The crash remains under investigation.
