A man was found dead along U.S. 1 and SW 139th Avenue early Thursday morning, authorities said.
According to Miami-Dade Police, the victim may have been struck by a hit-and-run driver.
The man, described as a white Latin male about 40 years old, was struck at about 5:30 a.m. and ended up in a field, police said.
“He was alive when he was on the floor. He was asking for help, and I guess he just died on the spot, and someone tried to drag him towards that grass field over there,” witness Danny Rodriguez said.
Neighbors told NBC 6 South Florida they heard no gunshots.
