Sunday morning, six cars were involved in an accident that claimed the life of a 23-year-old lady.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the collision happened inside Fort Lauderdale’s city borders. As of 9:30 a.m., all southbound I-95 lanes were closed due to the collision. All traffic was rerouted to Interstate 595, according to the FHP (State Road 862). Since it’s still active, investigators are currently on the scene.
A man driving a red 2019 Kia Forte sedan was abruptly forced to crash into a concrete median wall while traveling south on I-95, according to FHP. He was then diverted to the southwest. The Kia Forte Sedan and a black 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 on I-95 collided due to the driver’s inability to brake.
In an effort to provide assistance, the 23-year-old driver of a black Kia Forte Sedan halted her car and got out, according to the FHP.
Two additional cars were driving south on I-95 at the same time: a 2014 silver Cadillac ATS Sedna and a 2023 black Lexus IS300. According to the FHP, the silver Cadillac saw the woman, 23, had her car stopped and started to slow down.
The 23-year-old woman and the left side of her car were struck by the silver Cadillac after the black Lexus, which was traveling at a high speed, was unable to brake in time. This was reported by the FHP. The 23-year-old lady, according to FHP, was flung south and landed on the outside of I-95’s center lane.
Driving on I-95, a 21-year-old female driver of a black Ford Explorer collided with the right rear of a red Kia Forte. The front of the silver Cadillac and the black Ford Explorer collided after the latter struck a concrete barrier.
On the spot, the woman, age 23, was declared deceased. The next of kin has been informed, according to FHP.
