Three Dead, Six Injured In Coconut Creek Crash
Three men died in a high-impact head-on collision in Coconut Creek. The vehicle was heading into Cooper City when it collided with a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction.
A witness close by heard a loud crash outside his Coconut Creek home and ran out to investigate.
“I was doing the dishes and heard a bang and ran out to see what it was,” she said.
“I think there were six people in the four-wheel drive and three in the white car and I think the white car hit the other car unexpectedly.”
Authorities believe one of the vehicles veered onto the wrong side of the road.
While three men died, three others suffered significant injuries and were rushed to Coconut Creek Hospital.
A mother and two children in the second vehicle were also taken to hospital with injuries, but were not believed to be seriously hurt. An Inspector of Broward County police said a number of possible causes were being looked at.
“Police are investigating the incident and the Forensic Crash Unit were also present at the scene of the accident and are trying to get to the bottom of the incident as quickly as possible,” he said.
It’s unclear what has happened, but at this stage it appears one vehicle has crossed onto the wrong side of the road, however, it’s unclear if speed was a factor.
There were no other vehicles on the road at the time of the crash and FHP is appealing to any witnesses of the incident to come forward and callBroward County police with any information.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in fatalities.
