A 2-year-old girl was killed and his parents were hospitalized after a hit-and-run crash in northwest Miami-Dade Wednesday night.

The crash happened shortly after 9:30 p.m. in the 1000 block of Northwest 116th Terrace.

Miami-Dade Police officials said an unknown vehicle was traveling north on Northwest 10th Avenue when it struck the three family members, who were crossing near 12th Avenue.

A neighbor told NBC 6 they heard a loud boom and went outside, where they found the victims.

“The three people in the floor, the street,” said Yurima Molina. “I touched the baby, when I touched here, nothing.”

The 40-year-old father and 2-year-old girl were transported to Ryder Trauma, but the child later died. Police have not released the identity of the victims.

The 40-year-old mother was taken to another hospital by ambulance. Both the mother and father were in stable condition.

“I felt bad, like I really felt bad at that time," said neighbor Jireh Holland. "And I looked at the lady, like her leg was real messed up. I wanted to help, but I can’t do nothing at the same time.”

Police are still investigating the incident.
