MIRAMAR, Fla. – A grandmother who was struck by a car early Tuesday while walking her grandson to school has died of her injuries, police said.
Witnesses told police a white Chrysler 300 ran a red light at Miramar Parkway and Fairmont Avenue about 9 a.m. and struck Marie St. Vil, 79, and her 13-year-old grandson, Edwin St. Vil, as they were crossing the parkway using the crosswalk.
Paramedics took Vil and Edwin to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood. Vil died a short time later, police said.
Edwin said he suffered a broken foot, along with bumps and bruises.
"I'm feeling sad about her. Now she's dead, and I won't see her ever again," Edwin told Local 10 News reporter Christian De La Rosa.
The driver stayed at the scene after the crash, police said.
A view from Sky 10 after the crash showed the Chrysler with front-end damage.
