Man calls for driver to come forward after sister seriously injured in hit-and-run

A South Florida woman remains hospitalized as her family appeals for someone to come forward with information about the driver who struck the woman over the weekend in Sunrise.

"I thought she was gone," the victim's brother, Joseph Holguin, said.

Joseph Holguin's sister, Michelle Holguin, 53, remains in the intensive care unit at a local hospital after she was struck by a car just after midnight Saturday while she was riding her bicycle home from work.

"It was horrible. Words can't describe it. I just broke down,  just like I am now," Joseph Holguin said.

According to police, Michelle Holguin was riding her bike when she was hit by a car on Sunrise Boulevard near Flamingo Road and was dragged 25 yards.

The driver sped off without stopping to help, leaving Michelle Holguin unconscious in the roadway.

"Leaving her on the side of the road like a piece of meat, it's just not right," her brother said.

Without much information to go on, police and Michelle Holguin's loved ones are pleading for the driver to come forward.

"Take responsibility for what you did. It's just an accident. Stuff does happen, but fess up," Joseph Holguin said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. A reward of up to $3,000 is offered for information that leads to an arrest.
