A pedestrian was killed by an SUV rushing away from an earlier crash in West Miami-Dade.
The tragedy happened Wednesday at Northwest Fourth Street at 72nd Avenue. A Ford Explorer careened out of control, hitting the pedestrian on the sidewalk before and smashing into a utility pole. Police say the vehicle, driven by Jonathan Eismann, 51, was involved in an earlier crash with a Nissan Sentra three blocks away.
Several hundred residents at several businesses lost power after the crash.
