A South Florida family is in mourning after a mother was killed in a hit-and-run incident in southwest Miami Saturday morning.
Jeannette Barrios, 54, was on her way to work when she was hit by a car along Southwest 304th Street. A teddy bear and flowers now mark the spot where she was found.
"I'm still in shock, I can't believe this happened to my family," said Christine Sotomayor, Barrios's niece. "She loved her kids, she laughed at everything."
Police have opened an investigation into the incident.
