    [MI] Teen Killed in Hit and Run in Miami-Dade
    Miami-Dade Police said a Chrysler minivan was traveling eastbound on Southwest 184th Street near S. Dixie Highway when it was struck just after 5 a.m. by a Range Rover Sport going at a high rate of speed in an illegal southbound direction on the busway. The Range Rover's driver, 38-year-old Sandor Guillen, tried to flee the scene on foot but was caught after a perimeter was established, police said. Police said Kaely Camacho, 13, who was in the minivan with her father, 47-year-old Kirk Camacho, and sister, 16-year-old Breann Camacho, was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where she later died. Service station manager German Pascual rushed to help after he heard the accident. "I imagine that she received the whole impact of the accident, and we helped the father take the girl out," he said. "As soon as they told me that she died, it hurt me because I pulled her out," Pascual said, his voice breaking.

    The child, his mother and grandmother were trying to cross the street when a car hit him and his grandmother. The boy was also taken to the hospital, the BSO said, but he is going to be fine.

    The mother was not hit, but she became so upset that police temporarily placed her in handcuffs so she would not interfere.

    Traffic was backed up on a few highways during the Wednesday afternoon rush hour after a dump truck fell off a Florida?s Turnpike overpass onto grass next to SW 168th Street. The Florida Highway Patrol shut down the Turnpike heading northbound around the accident scene, as firefighters sprayed water onto the gray mangled wreck of the body of the truck late Wednesday afternoon. It was previously engulfed in flames, according to Miami-Dade Police.

    Investigators are now trying to determine whether the driver had the green light, the BSO said.
