I cried when I read about the hit-and-run crash that killed Ana Mares. My heart breaks for family and friends that lose loved ones this way. It was one year ago this month that I was hit by a driver while crossing a street in Aventura. I was lucky, I only had a concussion and a fractured knee, but that incident changed my life. I’m scared and anxious to cross streets or walk in parking lots where there are moving vehicles. I’m scared to walk on a sidewalk. What kind of a person could run someone over and not stop?
