A car crashed into a brick fence and sent debris flying into a Southwest Miami-Dade home, narrowly missing a child inside.
“A car was traveling this way and crashed into the bricks. It flipped and a man died,” said Maria Hernandez, who was home sleeping.
According to Hernandez, the accident happened at around 2 a.m. Saturday near her home at Southwest 40th street and 104th Avenue.
She said a piece of debris went flying through a window where her 12-year-old granddaughter was listening to music. The piece landed right in the middle of her bed.
“Thank God no one was hurt,” she said. “But I’m still nervous and scared.”
Also damaged by the flying debris were two vehicles parked in the front yard.
“One car was damaged and so was the other one,” she said. “One of the doors won’t open.”
Authorities have not identified the driver.
