A biker was killed on Thursday morning in the Flagami neighborhood of Miami as a result of a hit-and-run accident that took place earlier in the same day. The investigation into the incident is still ongoing at this time. Law enforcement officials began arriving at the scene in the vicinity of Flagler Street and Southwest 47th Avenue at roughly 4:30 in the morning. In addition to those who initially responded, firefighters and emergency medical technicians also arrived and confirmed the motorcyclist’s death at the scene. After further investigation, it was found that the person in question was fifty years old and went by the name Edgar Edmundo Sarduy Suarez.
A adjacent business’s CCTV footage captured the moment the biker and the driver of the car collided with one another. A red or maroon-colored sedan that was spotted making a turn onto Flagler Street was described as having either crimson or maroon as its hue. The video showed that the driver exited the vehicle, looked at the biker, and then removed something from the vehicle before running away on foot from the scene of the accident. While the authorities were looking into what had happened, the wrecked Toyota was left where it had been found and remained there for the entirety of the morning. Gabriella Pierre, who works in the area and manages a nail salon, claims that there are far too many accidents with significant injuries in the surrounding area.
We make an attempt to maintain our position on this side of the road whenever we see other vehicles traveling at a high rate of speed through this area. They go at a very high rate of speed across this region. The comment was made by Pierre who stated, “We have chairs back there, but sometimes they don’t even respect the light.” The investigation of what happened is still going on right now. “Detectives are still actively investigating and searching for the responsible driver who fled the scene without rendering aid, which could have in fact saved someone’s life,” reads a statement published by the Miami Police Department. According to this statement, “Detectives are still actively investigating and searching for the responsible driver.”
