Police are looking for two men who fled the scene after crashing their car into a bus stop in North Miami on Friday morning, injuring three people, including a grandmother.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews said the car ran a stop sign before slamming into a bus stop near Northeast 125th Street and 12th Avenue at about 9:40 Friday morning.

Chelsea’s grandmother was one of the victims taken to the hospital.
“My grandmother is in the hospital and I got scraped,” said Chelsea, who was treated at the scene.
One of the victims was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Two others were transported by ground to Aventura Hospital.
All were in serious condition, said a spokeswoman for North Miami police.
North Miami police said there were two men in the car at the time. Once the crash happened, they ran away.
Lori Agostini told CBS4 that she tried to tail the two men.
“They jumped out of the car .. I called 911 then I went after them…And I followed them as far as I could,” said Agostini.
The men in the car are described as black males ages 15-19. They were wearing black basketball shorts, one in a black tank top and the other in a white tank top, police said.
