Fatal hit-and-run involving children reported in Lauderhill

LAUDERHILL, FL – Police in Lauderhill are continuing their search for the suspect involved in a hit-and-run that killed a woman and injured three others Monday morning.

According to WSVN, the accident happened near the intersection of State Road 7 and Northwest 16th Street shortly before 11:00 a.m.

Police say a red SUV crashed into a green BMW before overturning. Shortly after the accident occurred, another vehicle picked up the occupants of the BMW—a driver and two children—and left the scene before emergency services arrived.
