Broward Sheriff’s Office traffic homicide detectives say they are investigating a hit-and-run crash that occurred last week in Oakland Park and left one woman dead.
According to authorities, the incident was reported shortly after 11 p.m. Thursday in the 3800 block of North Andrews Avenue.
BSO spokeswoman, Gerdy St. Louis, said deputies and first responders from Oakland Park Fire Rescue responded to the incident and discovered that the victim, a 59-year-old female, had been struck by a car while crossing North Andrews Avenue diagonally in the far left inner thru lane.
St. Louis said the driver never stopped to help the victim.
The victim was transported to Broward Health Medical Center by paramedics where she died later that evening.
A witness who heard the impact, but didn’t see the crash, told detectives that they saw a black four-door sedan heading north on North Andrews Avenue.
According to St. Louis, a fog lamp cover and other physical evidence recovered at the scene indicate that the vehicle involved in the collision was a 2013-2015 black four-door Honda Accord EX.
