Footage Shows Man Struck by Taxi in NE Miami-Dade Hit-and-Run

Police are hoping new footage showing a hit-and-run crash in northeast Miami-Dade involving a taxi cab that left a man critically injured will lead to them finding the driver responsible.

Jean H. Saint Louis, 48, was struck by the Ford Crown Victoria in the area of Northeast 144th Street and W. Dixie Highway around 3:40 a.m. Tuesday, Miami-Dade Police said. He was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition as a result of the hit-and-run crash.

Police said they're looking for the taxi cab, which they described as having a yellow front bumper, a black back bumper, a missing passenger side mirror and missing wipers. The cab has tinted windows and has possible damage to the windshield, officials said.

Detectives were out Friday passing out flyers in the area to see if the public can help them find the driver.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
