A 44-year-old Boca Raton woman was confirmed dead and a cab driver unconscious following a two-car crash on Interstate 95 in Broward County, the Florida Highway Patrol and witnesses said.
The woman lost control of her 2005 Kia Sorento in the southbound lanes of the interstate just north of Hillsboro Boulevard, Florida Highway Patrol said.
She was traveling in the left lane. Her vehicle swerved to the right, struck a cab and began to rotate clockwise, turning over at least twice. She was thrown from the car onto the pavement as it overturned, Florida Highway Patrol said. She was declared dead at the scene.
The cab driver was unconscious after the crash, and FHP said he is in stable condition in a local hospital in the county.
The woman who was traveling alone, was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the wreck, Florida Highway Patrol said. Results of tests on whether she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash were not yet made available.
Florida Highway Patrol officials had not determined the cause of the wreck yet. Its report did not really disclose how fast she was driving when the crash took place.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a cab driver, which ultimately, resulted in injuries. We wish the victim a speedy recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident.
