A car plowed into a home early Tuesday morning in North Miami.

NORTH MIAMI, Fla. – North Miami police are investigating a hit-and-run crash that occurred early Tuesday morning.

The crash occurred just before 3 a.m. in the area of Northwest 13th Avenue and 125th Street.

According to North Miami police, a blue Dodge Charger crashed into an unoccupied bedroom, leaving a gaping hole behind.

“It was like 3 o’clock in the morning. I saw lights and I looked out my window and I didn’t see anything,” one man said. “I thought maybe it was a fire. I’m surprised it happened there because over on the corner they’re always doing the wheelies – you can see the marks on the street.”

Police are now searching for surveillance video from nearby homes.

Anyone with further information about the hit-and-run crash is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
