Miramar Police are searching for a vehicle owner involved in a hit and run that left the man with life-threatening injuries

MIRAMAR, Fla. – Miramar Police held a press conference on Wednesday over a hit-and-run accident that left a man seriously injured and fighting for his life.

According to police, the crash happened at around 1:45am on Saturday at Block 6500 of Pembroke Road.

Authorities said Jahmaar Williams, 31, was trying to cross the road when he was struck by a vehicle traveling east on Pembroke Road.

Police said the driver of the vehicle fled the scene without stopping to help Williams.

William’s parents, who traveled from out of town to attend the press conference, expressed their sorrow to reporters.

“Not being able to hear his voice, not being able to touch my baby and not have him respond is extremely hard,” said Eleska Moore, William’s mother.

His parents are now asking for the public’s help to find the driver responsible for leaving their son unconscious with a breathing tube stuck to his throat.

“[He has]a charismatic smile that would brighten up any room,” said John Williams, father of Jahmaar Williams.

Relatives of Jahmaar Williams told Local 10 News that the victim has a 4-year-old son.

The victim’s brother, Chris Williams, said he witnessed the crash and was nearly hit himself.

He told Local 10 News that his brother is his best friend.

“My brother was so much more than just a father — he was a best friend, a mentor — he was so many things,” said Chris Williams.

Miramar Police said they were looking for a white BMW believed to be a 2013-2016 528i, 535i or 550i model with front damage.

This is not the first incident in this area in the last six months.

According to traffic reports, there have been four accidents in the Pembroke Road area, two of which were considered hit-and-runs and one fatal.

The family are now hoping Williams makes a full recovery and have a message for the driver:

“I forgive you and I know things happen, we just want you to step forward,” Moore said.

Anyone with information about the vehicle or its driver is urged to contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.

Police said callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward.
