BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – A Cocoa family is asking for help finding the person who hit their teenager with a car and then fled the scene.
The Florida Highway Patrol said they were called just after midnight on April 14 to the corner of South Burnett Road and Brophy Blvd. after a vehicle struck a pedestrian.
When they arrived, they found 16-year-old Tyriauna Smith on the side of the road.
Tyriauna’s sister, Raven Lewis, said the teen was walking home from hanging out with a friend and the friend said she bent over to tie her shoe when the vehicle hit her.
“When I got there the ambulance and police were already there and she was lying on the ground unresponsive,” said Lewis.
