A serious car crash on Sunday left a Miami-Dade police captain dead and two other people injured.
NBC Miami reports that the crash occurred in Cooper City at about 1:00 p.m. in the vicinity of the 11800 block of Griffin Road. Though authorities have not said exactly what happened during the crash, the report indicates that rescue personnel found one vehicle flipped over on its roof and the other vehicle on fire.
I’m extremely saddened after learning of the passing of MDPD Captain Tyrone White earlier today as a result of an off-duty traffic crash in Broward County. I offered his family my deepest condolences on behalf of his MDPD family. May he rest in eternal peace. 1/2….
