A Nissan Rogue was speeding and ran a red light, witnesses told police, before it crashed and slammed into a concrete wall, killing four people in North Lauderdale.
It happened at around 3:28 p.m. on Saturday near the intersection of Bailey Road and Rock Island Road.
The driver of a 2017 Nissan Rogue was headed west on Bailey Road, approaching the intersection of Rock Island Road. At the same time, the driver of a 2013 Toyota Camry was driving east on Bailey Road, attempting to turn and head north on Rock Island Road, Broward Sheriff’s Office investigators said.
A witness told detectives that the driver of the Rogue was speeding and ran a red light.
The Rogue hit the front passenger side of the Camry, and the impact caused the Rogue to spin and slide across the road, according to investigators. The vehicle headed onto the sidewalk and then slammed into a concrete wall.
North Lauderdale Fire Rescue and Tamarac Fire Rescue had to free all four people in the Rogue from the wreckage. Three were pronounced dead at the crash site. The fourth was airlifted to Broward Health Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
The victims’ identities were not disclosed by deputies per Marsy’s privacy law.
The woman driving the Camry was treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, according to the sheriff’s office.
