Broward County Police are still investigating after a 13-year-old boy crashed a car with a 7-year-old passenger on I-95.
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 look for their dog,” said a Broward County officer.
The police had received a call from a caller who said the boy was seen driving all over the road around Weston 148 on I-95.
A caller that was behind the two boys followed them to Pembroke Pines where the two struck the caller’s Nissan Rogue. The two continued onto I-95 and eventually crashed into a median around Broward County.
The car was totaled, but no one was confirm dead. The 13-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 guard rail just like normal. No hollering,” said the truck driver.
The 13-year-old and his 7-year-old passenger were both rushed to a nearby hospital in Coral Springs. Their injuries were not life threatening.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries.
