Oakland Park Resident Killed in Hit and Run


On January 8, 2021 a pedestrian was killed by a car at the corner of NW 38th Street and Powerline Road. The driver in that case stopped and cooperated with police. On Thursday January 14th, BSO responded to another incident in which a pedestrian had been hit. The difference in this latest incident is that the driver did not stop after hitting the victim. The hit-and-run incident occurred at the 3800 block of Andrews Ave in Oakland Park a little after 11:00 pm.

BSO and Oakland Park Fire Rescue responded to the scene where they found 59 year old, Oakland Park resident, Nancy Vazquez who had been struck by a vehicle. Vazquez was crossing Andrews Avenue diagonally in the far left inner thru lane when 2013-2015 black Honda Accord struck her and left her fatally wounded on the scene. After striking her, the vehicle continued northbound.

Paramedics transported Vazquez to Broward Health Medical Center to be treated for her injuries. She was later pronounced deceased at 11:37 p.m. that evening.

BSO detectives report that a witness heard the impact and saw a black four door sedan continue traveling northbound on Andrews after the impact. Detectives recovered a fog lamp cover and other physical evidence that indicated the vehicle involved is a 2013-2015 black four door Honda Accord EX.
