Fort Lauderdale Police Department is still investigating a crash that has left a woman in critical condition on Northeast 15th Avenue.
Authorities say the crash happened at the intersection of Northeast 15th Avenue and Northeast 13th Street. Report says a driver operating a 2013 Honda Xterra was headed southbound on the Northeast 15th Avenue when the accident occurred.
He failed to observe the red light at the intersection and crashed head-on with another vehicle. The vehicle that was struck was driven by a woman driving though the green light, heading east on Northeast 13th Street. She was driving a Toyota Corolla.
Emergency rescue workers say the impact left the woman in the Toyota with several injuries. EMS administered first aid treatment to the victim before airlifting her to the nearest hospital for treatment, police said.
The other driver in the Honda Xterra suffered only minor bruises to his head, which were treated at the scene by EMS.
The identities of the victim and the driver have not been released. Authorities say the crash is still under investigation and say no charges have been filed yet.
