Boy, 5, named Ramsey Cole dies after hit and run accident

Homestead News

Homestead, Fl. — Five-year-old Ramsey Cole Jr., died after a driver ran him over and didn’t stop to help him in May and Homestead officials have yet to catch the killer.

Ramsey’s father, Ramsey Cole, is haunted by the moment his daughter rushes in to tell him it happened when they cross Redland Road to walk from Blackie Park to the corner of the Family Dollar Store in Homestead.

Ramsey’s 13-year-old brother and other children witnessed the tragedy on May 29. Detectives have surveillance video showing a pickup truck pulling a U-Haul trailer. They consider the driver of the truck to be a person of interest.

The family is appealing to the public for help to catch the killer.

“He was a fun-loving boy. He loved to play sports: basketball, football, ”said the grief-stricken father.

Ramsey’s mother, Kimberly Preston, said the family needed justice.

“This is hurting. No one wants to go through this,” Preston said. “I just need to know whoever did this to my son … I am going to miss everything about my son.  He was my everything. His smile. His words.”

They are asking anyone with information about the fatal hit-and-run crash to call Miami-Dade County Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
