Officials say one person was killed and three people were hospitalized, including a 3-year-old, after a van was caught on surveillance speeding and hitting a guard rail head-on Sunday in a southwest Miami-Dade neighborhood.
Authorities say the crash happened just before 5 p.m. in the area of SW 110th Avenue and 248th Street. The loud crash instantly caught the attention of many in the neighborhood.
“It went over the canal, flipped and I think there was a couple of bodies that may have been thrown from it,” said one witness.
Miami-Dade police say one person died at the scene and two women were transported by ground to a local trauma hospital. The toddler was airlifted to Kendall Regional Trauma Center.
Investigators revealed no other vehicles were involved in the crash. It’s unclear why the van, which also had its rear door open, was speeding.
The identity of the victims was not released by police and they did not specify if it was the driver or one of the passengers who died.
