A 44-year-old woman from the Weston area was killed in a crash at the intersection of W Sample Road and North University Drive, reported by the Broward County Sheriff’s Department.
It was reported that the woman failed to stop at a stop sign and her car was struck by a sport-utility vehicle that was driven by a 28-year-old Fort Lauderdale area man.
First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the crash happened. When sheriff deputies arrived they found the woman critically injured. She was rushed to the nearest medical center where she was pronounced dead on arrival. The man driving the sport-utility vehicle sustained life-threatening injuries in the crash.
An eyewitness, who is a resident nearby, described the incident as “simply terrible.” “It literally happened in split seconds. It’s so sad,” he added. Roads in the area were shut down to allow the investigative team to review the crash. They estimated the roads would be closed for at least a couple of hours. Authorities are withholding names until family members can be notified.
The temporary closure of this route is due to the severity of the crash and has led to traffic delays. Vehicles on this route were pulling to the roadside to allow crews work.
