Woman shot dead after running over Miami Beach police officer

Woman Dead After Running Over Cop on Miami Beach Police

The woman tried speeding away in the black BMW as witnesses in the city's festive entertainment district yelled at her to stop, according to local reports.

Officials said a woman driving a black BMW sped through a red light at the intersection, struck another vehicle and struck a Miami Beach police officer as she attempted to leave the scene.

The collision happened on a sidewalk along Northeast 163rd Street and 22nd Avenue.

The vehicle came to a halt on 12th Street near Washington Avenue and also struck an SUV.

The driver first crashed into a truck near Miami's famous Ocean Drive before she slammed into a cop who was on foot, prompting nearby officers to open fire.

Miami Beach Police spokesman, Ernesto Rodriguez, said: "Miami Beach officers are now at the scene of a very active investigation". Police said another officer fired at the woman, who was struck by at least one round. Both the driver and the officer were taken to the hospital. He was in stable condition and alert late Sunday, Oates said.

Shay Davis and Monique Teller saw the woman's vehicle ram into the back of a work truck that had stopped for traffic. They said she was in her twenties.


Shay Davis and Monique Teller, who were visiting from Philadelphia, said they were eating dinner on the Sugar Factory's outdoor patio on Ocean Drive when they heard a loud boom.

"She started the auto and ran away", witness Miguel Garcia told CBS Miami.

Miguel Garcia, a tourist from Chile, said he was coming back from the beach when he saw the crash happen.

The woman was treated at the scene but later died, he said.

She then proceeded to drive her auto into another parked vehicle, before being shot by police.

Several people surrounded the driver, telling them to get out of the vehicle.
