Toddler Injured in SUV Hit and Run

​You have to be pretty cold-hearted to hit a pedestrian with a vehicle and speed off, but to hit a little girl and not stay at the scene? Wow. Two-year-old Natalie Garcia was walking with her teenage sister on a sidewalk in Southwest Miami-Dade when an SUV jumped the curb and hit her.

A witness tracked the driver of the SUV down, and told her that she hit a little girl. She didn't go back, but police found her at her house.
