Man struck in hit-and-run recovering at home

Last month, Alejandro Ramirez was walking to his car outside a gas station on the 700 block of Broward Blvd when he was struck by a moving car and went flying in the air.

He ended up hitting a street a sign before landing on the ground.

The driver left the scene.

"I had three breaks in my right arm," Ramirez said. "It's a miracle that I'm standing here in front of you right now."

Now, five weeks after a grueling recovery, Ramirez is back home.

Ramirez said he has a long road ahead and wants to say thank you to those encouraging him along the way.

"It's really been heartfelt and it's really helped in a very tough time, because things haven't been easy," he said.

Ramirez hopes the driver who left the scene is watching.

"It's messed up, I don't even know if that person even knows that they hit a person," he said. "Do what's right turn yourself in."

Police believe the vehicle involved in the hit-and-run was a white, 2004 to 2008, Acura TSX, believed to have had serious damage on the front and passenger side.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
