A report says a head-on crash that left two people injured happened along Northwest 23rd Avenue near Dillard Elementary School.
It was reported by a spokesman for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department that the driver of a silver car swerved into oncoming traffic and struck a dark gray Toyota.
According to the report, paramedics have transported both drivers to a nearby hospital. The driver of the silver car was listed in critical condition while the woman who drove the Toyota had minor injuries.
Authorities advised people to take an alternate route as a portion of Northwest 23rd Avenue near the crash was closed for several hours as police investigated. The street was reopened a few hours later.
