2 dead, 2 injured in crash in northwest Miami-Dade

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Police are investigating a crash that left two people dead and two others injured in northwest Miami-Dade Friday night.

It happened around 11:45 p.m. along Northwest 27th Avenue and 111th Street, across from the Miami-Dade College’s north campus.

Miami-Dade police were seen blocking off the street where the crash occurred.

According to investigators, a 2016 Hyundai Tucson was on the left turning lane traveling southbound on Northwest 27 Avenue approaching the intersection of N.W. 111 Street when the driver was struck by a 2017 Dodge Charger that was traveling northbound while speeding.

Guy Norman, a good Samaritan, told Local 10 News reporter Cody Weddle that he rushed to go help once he heard the sound of the loud crash.

“It sounded like a freight train. like a big freight train going off the railroad tracks, like it’s crashing,” he said. “When I looked around, I seen that these people need help.”

Authorities said the collision redirected both vehicles to the northeast corner where they struck a concrete wall and a disabled dirt bike.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded to the crash where they pronounced the driver of the Dodge Charger dead at the scene.

The driver was later identified as 20-year-old Camrun Lewis.

According to detectives, the front and rear passengers along with the driver of the Hyundai Tucson were transported to Ryder Trauma Center.

Norman, who operates a food truck nearby, says he pulled the driver of the SUV of the Hyundai Tucson from her car.

Authorities later identified the driver of the Hyundai Tuscon as 53-year-old Janeene Hills.

“It was just instincts, man–it could have been my sister, my anybody,” he said. “I just knew that’s the right thing to do, just my instincts.”

Authorities said the front passenger later identified as 20-year-old Cedrick Siggers, succumbed to his injuries.
