Miami-Dade Car Crash Kills Three Weston Residents
MIAMI, Fla. — According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, three young people hailing from Weston, Florida, died in a tragic auto accident Sunday. Florida Highway Patrol troopers said that the deadly crash occurred around 3:30 a.m. Troopers said that five people were in the vehicle that crashed. Three of them died, and two required hospitalization because they were suffering from severe injuries. Llaw enforcement officers dispatched to the scene reported the location of the accident to be on the northbound side of the Palmetto Expressway, which is also known as State Road 826, near the intersection with Northwest 58th Street. Troopers who reported on the crash have not identified the driver of the car.
The investigating troopers from the Florida Highway Patrol reported that the black Volkswagen sedan involved in the crash was northbound on the Palmetto Highway when the vehicle’s driver apparently lost control and left the road. Troopers said the vehicle went into the trees lining the side of the road.
The violent crash injured or killed all of the people riding in the car when it crashed. Troopers said that a 21-year-old male, a 20-year-old female, and a 21-year-old female were killed in the crash. Two of the young people who died were ejected from the Volkswagen. The third young person killed in the crash remained within the vehicle. Two young people who were seriously hurt were not ejected from the vehicle during the crash. All three of the people who perished in the crash lived in Weston, Florida. The survivors went by ambulance to Ryder Trauma Center, located at Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital.
A photo of the vehicle published by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel shows the condition of the Volkswagen after it left the road and crashed into trees. The passenger side windows are blown out, the rear of the vehicle is caved in, and the front end is mangled. All of the airbags in the vehicle appear to have been deployed in the crash.
