A woman was found dead early Monday morning in an Oakland Park roadway after being killed in a hit and run, police say.
Concepcion Siverts, 55 of Lauderhill, was found dead in the 1300 block of East Commercial Boulevard, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
BSO reports that they responded to the scene when they received a call around 1:42 a.m. about a woman lying on the westbound lanes in Oakland Park. She was pronounced dead at the scene and her injuries were consistent with someone who was struck by a vehicle, BSO said in a media release. They did not provide information pertaining to a vehicle that could have been involved in the case.
There is a $5,000 reward for tips that lead to an arrest.
A number of hit and runs have occurred in Oakland Park, as well as throughout the county. In January, Nancy Vazquez was killed in a hit and run and an eyewitness as well as debris left behind at the scene lead police to believe that the car involved was a 2013-2015 black four-door Honda Accord EX. In March, an unidentified man was also killed in a hit and run. A few days later, Matthew Masters survived a hit and run and shared his story with SFGN.
