A young man, 20, from Coral Springs has died in a car crash near the intersection of Wilton Drive and NE 5th Avenue, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.
The driver lost control of his Toyota Camry and crashed while driving South on Wilton Drive. The site of the crash is near Gym Sports Bar and Wilton Creamery.
According to the Sheriff’s office, the driver lost control, swerved to the right and hit a large concrete divider with his car. First responders arrived promptly to the crash site to rescue the victims. The emergency crew had to use special spreading 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.
To avoid delays, we suggest that you avoid this route and take alternate routes. A good alternate route is to use NE 6th Avenue or NE 8th Avenue.
This story will be updated when more information is released from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
