Girl dies 7 months after being injured in hit-and-run crash that killed 2 other girls

A third child died of injuries related to a hit-and-run crash seven months ago in Broward County.

WILTON MANORS, Fla. – A third child has died from the injuries she suffered during a hit-and-run crash about seven months ago in Wilton Manors.

Five-year-old Paris Kyli-Ann Jones and 6-year-old Andrea Fleming died soon after the crash on Dec. 27. Nine-year-old Laziyah “Minnie” Stukes died on Sunday.

Sean Greer was driving a gray 2009 Honda Accord when he struck six children along Ninth Avenue, between Northwest 26th and 24th Streets, and fled, police said.

“When I first arrived, she was on the ground. She had blood from her head, so I really didn’t know the severity of it,” Devera Stukes said about her daughter Laziyah, who was initially hospitalized.

After about two weeks, Laziyah started to open her eyes and grab her mother’s hand.

“We all thought that she was going to pull through,” Devera Stukes said.

Two-year-old Audre Fleming, 9-year-old Draya Fleming, and 10-year-old Johnathan Carter survived the crash, relatives said.

Officers arrested Greer on Dec. 28. He is facing charges of tampering with evidence, two counts of vehicular homicide, reckless driving causing bodily injury, and driving without a license.

Meanwhile, Laziyah’s condition started to worsen.

“I reminded her of all the things we did. I reminded her of her brother, her God brother, her cousins, her family,” Devera Stukes said, adding it wasn’t easy to say goodbye to her little girl.

Devera Stukes said she is really going to miss her daughter’s smile.

“She was always smiling. She was always happy,” the mother said.

Devera Stukes said she is planning her daughter’s funeral and is hoping the community can help her cover the cost. She set up a GofundMe fundraiser where donations can be made.
