Four Killed in New Year’s Day Crash in SW Miami-Dade
Four people were killed in a New Year’s Day crash in SW Miami-Dade.
NBCMiami.com reports that the crash involving two vehicles occurred on Flagler Street during the early morning hours, and left both of the vehicles mangled.
Though investigators are still unsure of the cause of the crash, they do know that a total of seven people were in the two vehicles when they collided just before 4:00 a.m. on Friday. A southbound blue Hyundai Elantra apparently had a flashing red light and was struck by a black Chevy Tahoe that was traveling on Flagler Street with a flashing yellow light.
The crash was so severe that one of the victims was thrown from the vehicle. The crash killed three men and one woman in the Elantra; all died at the scene of the crash. Three 16-year-old boys were in the Tahoe and were hospitalized with nonlife-threatening injuries.
Authorities are investigating whether speed or alcohol played a roll in the crash, NBCMiami.com reports
