Two men flagging down a taxi on Collins Avenue near Espanola Way were struck by a newer model Mercedes that careened between the cab and the sidewalk, then sped away early Friday morning.

Jordana Rosales, of Coral Gables, was arrested Friday night by Miami Beach police in connection with the crash.

Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez said the men were transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where one is in critical condition and the other is stable. Their names have not been released.

The two men were special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigation and were on duty when injured, according to an email sent to CBS4 from Homeland Security.

Rodriguez said it was 2:19 a.m. when the men stopped the cab on Collins. They were talking to the driver through the front passenger window when a gray Mercedes E350 Sedan steered around the cab and drove partially up the median and hit the men.

The Mercedes left a key piece of evidence behind: the driver side rear-view mirror.

According to a police report, after fleeing the scene, she drove to 92 SW 3rd St. in the City of Miami. City of Miami police officers responded to the location. Miami Beach police arrived shortly after.
