Broward County Police are still investigating after a 10-year-old boy crashed a car with a 7-year-old passenger on I-64.
The Broward County Sheriff’s Office said they got a call from concerned foster parents who woke up to find the two young boys gone with their Lexus. “They thought the kids had taken the vehicle to possibly go to look for their dog,” said a Broward County officer.
The police had received a call from someone that was following behind the two boys to Gum Springs, where the two struck a Nissan Rogue. The two continued onto I-64 and eventually crashed into a median around Howard County.
The car was totaled and one pedestrian was injured. The 10-year-old was so small that the driver’s seat was pushed all the way up so he could reach the pedals.
“When I got there, they were sitting by the guardrail just like normal. No hollering” said the truck driver.
A Broward County Sergeant was called to the scene to take the boys home, where they were turned back into the foster parent’s custody. The police are still investigating the crash.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is an accident involving a minor, which ultimately, caused injuries to a pedestrian. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident so that the family and friends of the victim can get justice and have a closure. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
