Hialeah cops say Pulido made a left turn off East Fourth Avenue onto 17th Street when she struck Quiala as he tried to cross the street. She roared away in a stolen 2007 Toyota Camry, cops say, leaving Quiala in the street. He was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he died.
Pulido’s Miami-Dade County criminal past includes only paying $358 in fines and court costs after a petit theft charge in 2016. As a driver, she’s been issued four tickets, but has no convictions on those tickets.
