An off-duty FHP detective on his way to work was killed in a car crash when a wrong-way driver rammed into his vehicle in Davie.
The detective’s widow said he wasn’t even supposed to be on the road for several more hours.
“Next month would’ve made 30 years that we’ve been together,” said the victim’s grieving wife who said she was unknowingly stuck in the traffic caused by her husband’s fatal wreck.
She said her husband had to work an unusually early shift and she did not see him before he left their home in Coconut Creek.
He would drop our daughter at school in the city.” She said.
“Today he had to be there very early so it was a different routine.”
The accident happened on Davie Parkway between Route 100B and the Cooper City Road overpass in Broward County, cops said.
The 46-year old victim was a 17-year FHP veteran who worked for the Internal Affairs department.
The head on impact was so severe, it launched the his Honda Pilot over the highway’s outer guardrail and came to rest on a bank, pinning him inside. He was dead at the scene.
Investigators noticed his FHP placard still inside the vehicle, the sources said.
