Driver Plows Into Grocery Shop, Killing One And Injuring Eight Others
A driver was killed and his passenger injured after a vehicle crashed into a grocery store in Broward County.
Police said a 24-year-old man was driving a Cadillac headed westbound on Hollywood Boulevard in Broward County.
It appears that the man somehow lost control in the traffic circle and crashed into the back of the grocery store, located at 1735 East Young Circle.
Thirteen people were in the store at the time, but employees at nearby businesses added that the entire building shook due to the impact of the crash.
Police said the 24-year-old driver was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the car and pronounced dead at the scene.
The man’s girlfriend, 20, who was in the car, was also injured. She was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital in critical condition.
Eight people in the store were severely injured and are currently listed in critical condition in a hospital in the County.
Traffic was shut down on Hollywood Boulevard westbound as police and fire rescue crews responded to the scene.
Broward County Police and the Florida Highway Patrol are investigating the cause of the crash.
Anyone with additional information concerning the crash is asked to contact either the Broward County Police Department or the Florida Highway Patrol.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “Driving the speed limit on Florida’s Highways isn’t just the law. It may save your life by keeping you from being in an accident. Unfortunately, in our practice, we have seen numerous instances where drivers blatantly violate these regulations, which results in catastrophic consequences.”
