Robbery Suspect’s Escape Attempt Ends in Deadly Crash in NW Miami-Dade

On Thursday in northwest Miami-Dade, a tragic incident unfolded as a man lost his life in a collision. The incident occurred while law enforcement officers were trying to apprehend an individual who had fled from a robbery.

The initial response from the Miami-Dade Police took place at a Chevron gas station situated on Northwest 54th Street.

At this location, a man engaged in a physical struggle with a victim while attempting to steal her purse, as explained by spokesperson Angel Rodriguez.

Subsequently, officers made an effort to halt the suspect’s vehicle as it attempted to evade them. Regrettably, the vehicle refused to comply with the officers’ commands, leading to a decision by law enforcement to discontinue the pursuit.
