A suspected robber was struck and killed by a car Thursday evening along on the Airport Expressway in Northwest Miami-Dade.
Police responded to the scene along the eastbound lanes of SR-112, also known as Airport Expressway, near 27th Avenue exit, which is located near Miami International Airport.
Police pursued a suspicious driver after reports of a robbery near the scene of the accident. That suspect was driving on the westbound lanes, but then bailed out of the car and ran across the median into the eastbound lanes, Miami-Dade police said. The suspect was then hit by a taxi and died at the scene.
The accident blocked two left lanes along SR-112 as detectives investigated the deadly accident. Both the robbery victim and the taxi driver were unhurt in the incident.
