According to the report, a woman from Fort Lauderdale is dead after her truck was crushed by a tractor trailer at Southern Boulevard.
A Florida Highway Patrol report says, the Ford F150 was driven by a woman who has not yet been identified. She became wedged under the overturned semi at Southern Boulevard and State Road 700.
It was further stated that the woman was driving south on State Road 700 when a semi attempted to turn right onto 700. The driver of the semi, identified as 33-year-old Yadier Pena Gonzalez, overshot the turn and flipped the tractor trailer, ramming into the woman’s truck.
Florida Highway Patrol said she was the only person in the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene.
A car approaching from behind the woman’s truck veered out of the way of the semi and drove off the road. The two occupants, Aidan Mowatt, 21, and Stanquita Russ, 32, were taken to Lakeside Medical Center in Belle Glade with minor injuries.
Gonzalez, of Hialeah, was not injured.
Authorities are still investigating the cause of the crash, but it is not thought to be alcohol-related.
