Fort Lauderdale police commented on the incident. They said a Toyota Hilux traveled west on Sistrunk Boulevard at Homes Beautiful Park with two occupants inside. The Toyota approached an intersection at the time of the accident.

The impact of the collision knocked the pedestrians off their feet and tossed several feet. The Toyota driver slammed on his brakes.
First responders arrived at the scene within minutes. They rushed all three victims to a nearby hospital for immediate treatment. The driver and the passenger in the Toyota pickup did not receive injuries.
