Authorities said one person dead and four others were injured in a rollover crash in southwest Miami-Dade County.
The accident occurred in the area of Southwest 112th Avenue and Southwest 248th Street, near Florida’s Turnpike. Police and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials were summoned to rescue the victims.
Report says that three vehicles were involved in the accident, including one that flipped over onto its roof. It was also reported that the vehicle that rolled over was torn in half due to the impact of the crash.
Police said a Scion was heading south on 112th Avenue, when the driver veered to the right and drove off the roadway onto the west dirt shoulder. The driver then overcorrected, veered back to the left into oncoming traffic and crashed into an SUV and a Honda Odyssey that were heading north on 112th Avenue.
Report says the two people inside the Scion was ejected onto the grassy shoulder due to the impact of the crash. One of them was pronounced dead at the scene and the other was airlifted to Kendall Regional Medical Center.
Police said two others were taken to Jackson South Community Hospital as trauma alerts and one was hospitalized with less severe injuries.
The Miami-Dade Police Department and Florida Highway Patrol are involved in the investigation. Authorities have not released the identity of the victim who was killed in the crash. A Miami-Dade County Public Schools spokeswoman confirmed that two of the people involved in the crash are students.
