OPA-LOCKA, Fla. – A mother of six children has been identified as the woman who was killed in a hit-and-run crash Wednesday night in Opa-locka.
Deandre Bradley, who went by Dede, was killed while crossing the intersection of Northwest 135th Street and 30th Avenue around 9:45 p.m.
“Somebody’s always going to get killed on this road. It’s a dangerous street,” Sislynn Brown said. “If that light is yellow, they ain’t slowing down. They keep on going.”
Brown said cars are frequently speeding through the intersection, calling it a “drag racing strip.”
Brown said she knew Bradley and was there when the hit-and-run happened.
She told Local 10 News that Bradley was crossing the street with her 14-year-old son when Bradley saw the car blow through the intersection.
Brown said the victim pulled her son out of the street, saving his life in exchange for her own.
