A female driver was shot and fatally wounded by a Miami Beach police officer Sunday evening after she allegedly ran over another officer.

A woman was shot and killed by police in Florida after she sped her vehicle through the streets of South Beach and ran over a police officer, news reports say.

She then drove off before hitting another auto on Lincoln Road, the popular entertainment and shopping area, police said.

The driver and officer were not immediately identified, and Miami Dade Police Department investigators are probing why the other cop opened fire on the driver.

The woman tried speeding away in the black BMW as witnesses in the city's festive entertainment district yelled at her to stop, according to local reports.

The collision happened on a sidewalk along Northeast 163rd Street and 22nd Avenue.

Police said they are investigating what precipitated the incident.

The auto came to a halt on 12th Street near Washington Avenue and also struck an SUV.

Another officer opened fire, squeezing off "one or more rounds" before the woman lost control of the luxury vehicle and crashed into a parked SUV.

"She started the auto and ran away", said witness Miguel Garcia.

Miguel Garcia, a tourist from Chile, said he was coming back from the beach when he saw the crash happen. Emergency workers rushed her to Jackson Memorial Hospital, but she could not be saved. "I heard like shots, like four or five shots, like 'pow, pow, pow, pow!' And then the vehicle lost control", Garcia added.

Garcia said that the woman was pulled out of the vehicle - not breathing - and that there was blood everywhere.

Several people surrounded the driver, telling her to get out of the auto.
