Authorities are searching for a driver after a man on an electric scooter was killed in a hit-and-run in southwest Miami-Dade Wednesday morning.
The incident was reported shortly before 5:30 a.m. not far from a bus stop in the area of Southwest 296th Street and Old Dixie Highway, Miami-Dade Police officials said.
Officials said the 20-year-old man was struck by a red Honda that fled the scene. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded and pronounced the man dead at the scene.
Footage from the scene showed the man's body covered by a tarp and broken pieces of the electric scooter nearby.
Officials haven't released the man's identity.
Traffic homicide detectives are investigating the incident and believe the vehicle has front-end and windshield damage.
Surveillance footage from a business on Old Dixie Highway showed the suspect vehicle zooming past just moments after the hit-and-run. The business owner said investigators estimated the car was going around 90 mph.
