The man and his daughter were in a Mitsubishi Lancer when it was hit by a Nissan Murano SUV, driven by a 22-year-old man. The Nissan driver was traveling in the southbound lane and struck the Mitsubishi as it attempted to turn left onto NE 16th Street. The Mitsubishi driver was traveling in the northbound lane when his car was hit on the driver’s side. After the collision the Mitsubishi flipped several times before coming to a stop.
EMS arrived at the scene of the accident to administer on-site first aid to the injured victims in the incident. Emergency crews reported that the man and his daughter both sustained several injuries in the crash. Both victims were in stable condition when the rescue team arrived. Firefighters and a Highway Patrol helped to pull out both father and daughter from the vehicle that was flipped over.
They were both taken to the nearest hospital for treatment. The driver of the SUV was not hurt injured in the incident.
The identity of the SUV driver is being withheld by Fort Lauderdale Police Department for security reasons. Authorities are still investigating the crash and no other details were released.
Glen Levine, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “If you or a family member has been involved in an auto accident and the other driver has left the scene of the crash, you need to act quickly. It is best if you can get the names and phone numbers of any witnesses along with a vehicle description. Contact the police immediately and file a police report. Take photos of the crash scene and the damage to your vehicle or property. Contact any businesses or homes in the area that may have video surveillance of what occurred and the vehicle that fled. All of this will assist the police in locating the hit and run driver. Finally you should contact a car accident attorney to help guide you through this difficult process.”
