Minoche Camelis, 3, did not survive. Fort Lauderdale Police said a relative was pulling out when the truck hit her head-on.
“I feel so bad for her mother. I’m just so shocked, so sad that this 3-year-old had to die like this. I didn’t even want go closer to the house because there was too much screaming going on,” said neighbor Tina Johnson.
Potison Despinasse is not related by blood, but said it is one big close church family that lives at the home located at 2317 NW 14th Court. The girl’s mother is the church pastor.

Despinasse said he told Minoche to stay inside. Suddenly, he felt the bump.
“For me, I don’t think I can live. I’m not lying. I don’t think I can live long. I don’t know what to say,” Despinasse said.
No charges have been filed.
