High heels and car parts were left scattered in the streets of South Beach after a hit-and-run accident early this morning. Police say a woman was hit outside the Loews Hotel on Collins Avenue at 16th Street around 3:45 a.m.
Witnesses say the car, believed to be a dark gray Dodge Charger, was traveling 35 to 45 mph when it struck the woman. She was sent flying into the air before hitting the ground.
