An accident in Miami Shores results in the death of one person and another to sustain injuries. The Miami Shores Police and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue were dispatched to the scene of an accident over this past weekend in the vicinity of Northeast 103rdStreet and Third Avenue.
According to eyewitnesses, two vehicles were involved in the crash. One of the vehicles burst into flames due to the fact that it had crashed into a tree.

Based upon what residents saw and heard, it is believed that two vehicle were engaged in drag racing. However, this has not yet been confirmed by police.
