MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A 20-year-old woman has died after she was struck by a vehicle Sunday while riding her bicycle in northeast Miami-Dade.

Miami-Dade police said the driver of the gold Toyota Tundra, believed to be a four-door 2007 to 2013 model, fled the scene.

Investigators spent several hours processing the scene along Northeast 14th Avenue and 205th Terrace after the crash occurred around 10 a.m.

Just to the side of the bike were a pair of shoes flung apart.

Anyone with information about the driver is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
