Police reported that a driver is dead after a car veered off the roadway and crashed into a canal in Northwest Miami-Dade County.
According to Miami-Dade police report, the car veered off the roadway, broke through a metal barricade and crashed into a canal at the corner of Northwest 127th Avenue and Northwest 25th Street.
A man named Alberto Fajarda that works nearby told the reporter that he sighted rescuers pulling a man from the water. Report says the victim was airlifted to Kendall Regional Medical Center, but he didn’t survive.
It was reported that police used flashlights to search for evidence. Few moments later, police placed evidence markers on the ground, possibly to retrace the vehicle’s path, and used a measuring wheel to possibly determine the distance it traveled before crashing.
According to the report, the car had significant front-end damage and it was later removed from the water and towed away.
Another man identified as Ernesto Bernardo, who also works nearby, called the curve dangerous and said it isn’t the first crash that’s happened there at Northwest Miami-Dade. He said “the curve is closed and tight and that there aren’t enough warning signs for drivers.”
The driver hasn’t yet been identified by the police.
