Miami-Dade launched a new text message and e-mail alert program Wednesday in honor of a young girl who was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver. On Jan. 8, 11-year-old Ashley Valdes was struck by a truck moments after getting off a school bus on Southwest 80th Street.
8 days later police arrested suspect Harvey Abraham.
