On the morning of this Monday, 02, a little after 07:00, Mrs Maria Alvina Guimarães Siqueira, 59 years old, was hit by a speeding Volkswagen who fled the scene without notifying authorities of the accident.
Maria Alvina suffered serious injuries and was kept at the scene of the accident until the arrival of rescuers from the Fire Department, who, after providing first aid, took her to the HCTCO, a reference unit in the city for trauma cases.
The driver fled and abandoned the car on Rua Florentino de Paula, in Vale do Paraíso. After receiving a tip, the Military Police went to the place where the car was abandoned and later called the Municipal Civil Guard tow truck to collect the car from the Municipal depot in Três Córregos.
Meanwhile, the victim’s family mobilized social networks in search of information that could collaborate with the police investigation work in the search for the driver involved in the accident.
