A young man, 19, from Weston has died in a car crash near the intersection of Broward Blvd and University, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.
The driver lost control of his Nissan and crashed while driving west on Broward Blvd.
According to the Sheriff’s office, the driver lost control, swerved to the right and hit a large concrete divider leading to the crash.
First responders arrived promptly to the crash site to rescue the crash victims. The cars had to use special devices to open the doors and remove the injured. Fortunately they worked very quickly.
The driver and his passenger were both transported to the Broward Health Medical Center’s trauma unit by the authorities. Unfortunately, he died shortly after arrival at the hospital while his passenger remains in the hospital with serious injuries.
