FHP reports that Krome Avenue was closed between Tamiami Trail and Okeechobee Road after a fatal crash.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol a pickup truck and a Ford Fusion were traveling north on Krome Avenue when they collided. Following the initial crash the Ford Fusion flipped on its side and then rolled onto the grassy shoulder of the road while the pickup truck driver hit a tree. Lt. Alejandro Camacho of FHP stated that speed may have been a factor in the fatal crash but did not elaborate on any other possibilities.
The driver of the pickup truck was pronounced dead by EMS shortly after their arrival. The driver and passenger in the Ford Fusion were taken to the hospital in stable condition and are expected to fully recover.
All lanes in both directions of the road were closed to allow law enforcement to investigate the scene. Emergency crews were scene cleaning up debris from the accident for some time causing traffic to back up for miles in both directions.
The identities of the parties involved in the accident were not released to the public by authorities at the time of this report and police are still investigating the incident.
