Speeding and wet roads can be the root cause of deadly Broward County automobile accidents.
Three people, two women and one man, were killed on the Sawgrass Expressway in Broward County the other morning when the Mercedes they were traveling in crossed the median and hit a concrete barrier. The crash happened near the University Dr. exit. The southbound lanes were shut down to traffic for several hours. The Mercedes was heading south around midnight, according to police, when it went off the road, crashed into the dividing wall and killed the occupants of the car. All were pronounced dead at the scene. No official cause was cited but there was speculation that the vehicle was speeding and we know that the road was wet from the rain, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Investigators have identified the passengers in the vehicle and are working to notify family members before releasing the names of the victims.
In other recent unrelated accidents, a man was killed when the motorcycle he was riding, a 2001 Suzuki GSK 600 traveling south on North Andrews Avenue, crashed at the intersection of North Andrews Avenue and Northwest 15th Street.
A Davies man was pronounced dead at the scene when his motorcycle which was traveling at a high rate of speed, struck the driver’s side door of a car making a left-hand turn out of a strip mall near the 3400 block of Griffin Road.
