Report says Florida Highway Patrol and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue units rushed to a crash scene involving two tractor-trailers leaving one person dead in West Miami-Dade.
This furious and fatal accident happened at Southwest Eighth Street and Krome Avenue in West Miami-Dade. A tractor-trailer was said to have been T-boned by another tractor-trailer as the truck was making a left turn from Krome Avenue onto Southwest Eighth Street.
According to FHP Lt. Alex Camacho, a white container a left to go west on Eighth Street, and then the truck actually collided the front portion with the container. It was reported that a woman died as a result of the wreck, while a man was airlifted to Kendall Regional Medical Center in critical condition. These were the occupants of the large vehicle.
The driver of the tractor-trailer escaped without injury.
