Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives want to know who was behind the wheel of a minivan when a North Lauderdale woman was struck as she attempted to cross State Road 7 Tuesday night in North Lauderdale.
BSO investigators said a silver or gray minivan was heading north on State Road 7 in the right through lane approaching Southwest 12 Street shortly before 10 p.m. when Jean Mirabile walked westbound into the vehicle’s path. Witnesses said the minivan had a green light when Mirabile stepped onto the roadway, but the driver didn’t stop after hitting her.
Mirabile was flown by BSO helicopter to Broward Health North hospital. BSO traffic homicide investigators were called to the scene due to the seriousness of her injuries. However, Mirabile is improving, and her injuries are said to be non-life threatening.
Detectives are looking for a 2001-2005 silver or gray Chrysler Town and Country or Dodge minivan. Detectives said the minivan is missing the passenger-side mirror and possibly has additional damage on the passenger side of the vehicle.
Anyone with information on this case or the whereabouts of the minivan is urged to call BSO THI Det. Anthony Morales at (954) 321-4840 or contact Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at (954) 493-TIPS (8477) or online at www.browardcrimestoppers.org.
