Pembroke Pines, FL (October 10, 2018) - A woman was pinned between two vehicles in a hit-and-run crash that occurred on Friday, October 5th in Pembroke Pines.
Octavia Tirado was at her house in when a car crashed into a vehicle in her driveway.

The vehicle that caused the crash then sped out of Tirado's driveway and crashed into at least two other vehicles as it proceeded down the street.
Tirado's five-year-old son was in the path of the vehicle but the boy's father threw him out of the path just before impact. Tirado says she is thankful that her son is alive. Tirado was hurt in the crash and is currently using crutches to get around, but she is expected to make a full recovery.
