Video shows 3 suspects wanted in fatal Miami hit-and-run crash

Surveillance video from a gas station shows the suspects detectives are searching for after a hit-and-run crash that killed a woman and injured another in Miami-Dade County.

MIAMI – Detectives are asking the public for help to identify three suspects in the hit-and-run crash that killed 63-year-old Mayra Sanchez and injured her friend on Monday in Miami.

Surveillance cameras at a nearby gas station recorded video showing the suspects who were in a stolen white Range Rover that struck Sanchez’s car in the Little Havana neighborhood.

Sanchez’s daughter Jacqueline Noguera had a message for the culprit on Tuesday: “They are going to catch you! Whoever you are, please just turn yourself in. This is not fair.”

Detectives shared the video on Wednesday. They believe the driver of the Range Rover ran a stop sign before the deadly T-bone collision at the intersection of Northwest Third Street and 11th Avenue.

“The Range Rover just drove into that car; took it a half block down. Those two women there unconscious and we couldn’t do nothing,” Zoraine Vichot, a witness, said.

Witnesses told police officers the driver and the passengers jumped out of the damaged Range Rover and took off running. Vichot said she was angry with the ones who ran away.

“It is heartbreaking! How can you do that? How can you leave somebody like that?”

Firefighters had to use the jaws of life to get Sanchez and her friend out of the mangled car. Relatives said the tragedy happened while Sanchez was giving her friend a ride.

Detectives are asking anyone with information about the case to call Miami-Dade County Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
