Beautiful Lady Killed By Police Officer After She Crashed Into Their Vehicle

A pretty aspiring lawyer has been shot dead by police officers after she reportedly crashed and knocked down a cop. The 22-year-old lady, Cariann Hithon, was celebrating her birthday when she crashed her black BMW into three vehicles in Miami.

As a crowd gathered around her car, Ms Hithon sped forwards, knocking one Florida police officer to the ground and another officer immediately fired three shots at her.

Her car then swerved across the road and crashed. Ms Hithon was taken to a nearby hospital where she died of the injuries.

The police officer she hit, David Cajuso, has been released from hospital and is recovering at home, the Miami Beach police department said.

According to the Miami Herald, investigators believe Ms Hithon and her friend, who got out of the car before she accelerated, had been drinking heavily.

In a social media footage, one bystander can be heard saying the driver was "drunk as sh**."

Her mum, Cary Hithon, said his daughter's actions were "out of character."

He told CBS Miami the lady, an aspiring lawyer, "wanted to make a difference in the lives of people who weren't as fortunate as her."

According to Independent UK, she recently transferred from Hampton University in Virginia to Temple University and was expected to graduate with a degree in political sciences. Prosecutors have opened an inquiry into whether police acted lawfully in shooting and killing Ms Hithon.
