Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Yanko Reyes said a fatal accident southbound on I-95 Near Dania Beach has killed three people and seriously injured two others.
FHP reported that the sedan was traveling southbound on Interstate 95, north of State Road 818/Griffin Road, Near Dania Beach. Reyes added that the crash blocked all the southbound lanes.
Report says the SUV, carrying two women and one man, had already been involved in a separate crash that disabled it across the left and left center lanes, facing east.
Meanwhile, the 26-year-old female driver, and a 25-year-old man, both from Fort Lauderdale, reportedly got out of the SUV while a woman remained inside. The passenger who stayed in the SUV died. Her age and residence were not released. The driver and the other passenger were seriously injured, according to FHP.
Consequently, a 35-year-old man from Dania was driving the sedan. Troopers say he “was unable to avoid a collision” with the SUV. The sedan’s front slammed into the SUV’s left side and both cars went up in flames.
The sedan’s driver and his passenger, a 25-year-old man from West Palm Beach, also died on the scene, FHP said. Reyes said investigation is ongoing.
FHP asks drivers to avoid the area as traffic is lighter than the usual now, due to the coronavirus crisis.
