Police in Broward County are looking into the death of an 11-year-old boy who died just moments after he survived a car crash unharmed.
The mother of the 11-year-old, said they were on their way home in her Honda Accord when they were hit by a speeding Pontiac while traveling through an intersection, the Post reports.
“The light was green and as soon as I got to the light it turned yellow, I couldn’t stop,” she says. The crash left her son unharmed, still asleep in the backseat but moments later, a third car pulled up, and police say a woman inside swerve into the Honda, fatally wounding the boy, who later died in the hospital.
Cops believe the driver of the Pontiac fled the scene, however, the driver of the third car described as a dark sedan is currently in police custody.
Florida Highway Patrol tells the Post that the identities of the people in the other vehicles still remain unknown. The Florida Highway Patrol believes the son she describes as a witty, fun-loving honor roll student may have been killed because of road rage.
“If you know something, then say something,” the FHP department tells the general public.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in a fatality.
