Miami Beach Woman Shot Dead After Striking Police Officer With Car

Miami Beach Woman Shot Dead After Striking Police Officer With Car

A woman was gunned down by police in Florida after she crashed into a auto and then ran over a cop in her BMW along a busy stretch in South Beach, police and witnesses say.

Miami Beach Police Chief Daniel Oates said the officer, who was not named, was being visited by his family and other officers.

Police said a shooting victim was still at the scene.

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.

Investigators are now looking into whether the other officer involved should've fired his gun.

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

Officers said the driver kept going and crashed into a white SUV on 12th Street and Collins Avenue. The officer who was struck suffered lacerations to the body and loss of consciousness, according to Miami Beach Fire.

Miami-Dade police detectives were investigating the incident. The officer is listed in stable condition. She was treated at the scene and transported to hospital, where she later died. Police confirmed a man was in the auto with the woman.

Witnesses said the female driver backed up and tried to leave, despite pedestrians yelling at her to stop.

"One of the cops was in front of the vehicle and when they were yelling at her to get out of the auto, she just started the vehicle again", said witness Miguel Garcia.

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

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