A woman was having the perfect 21st birthday prior to a car crash which claimed her life.
The college junior, who was home for spring break, had dinner with family and then went out with her friends for her 21st birthday.
The celebration took a horrific turn on the way home when the aspiring social worker was killed in a crash. She was ejected from a car driven by her friend. The victim was in the back seat of the 2013 Infiniti sedan.
The 26-year old driver lost control and slammed into a barrier dividing the inner and outer roadway before hitting a support pillar with such force that it ripped the car in half, police said.
The woman, a Cooper City resident, was thrown from the wreckage and died at the scene.
“She’s gone, that’s the tragedy. My baby’s gone,” her mom said outside the family’s home
“She was a wonderful girl. My youngest out of three,” the mom said. “We celebrated her 21st birthday yesterday, and I’m not going to see her graduate from college.”
The driver and his front seat passenger, identified by sources as 24-year-old man were taken to a hospital in Broward County with severe injuries.
The driver was charged with vehicular manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, DWI, and cited for speeding, police said.
The crash is still under investigation.
