Woman Killed In Broward Turnpike Pile Up

DAVIE (CBS4) – One woman was killed, three other people were injured, in a multi-vehicle crash on the Florida Turnpike in Broward early Sunday morning.

Around 6:20 a.m. a woman driving a Mazda was heading north when she was rear ended about a half mile south of I-595, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald. Drivers coming up on the scene of the crash swerved to avoid hitting it and ended up hitting each other. The woman in the Mazda was killed. Those injured were taken by Davie Fire Rescue to Broward General Medical Center; no word on their conditions.

During their investigation, the Florida Highway Patrol closed all of the northbound lanes to traffic for several hours; drivers were forced to exit at Griffin Road.

The FHP has not released the name of the woman who was killed.

    I just don’t get it why do people have to drive so fast that they don’t see what is going on in front of them I will never understand that not now or ever,

    I just have one question.

    Did she have on her seatbelt? If she didn’t and I hate to say this she was asking for it because seat belts SAVE LIVES!!!

    Seatbelts do not always lock unless you hit the brakes quickly..Someone pulled out in front of me 2 times in the last 3 months.My sealt belts or air bags never went off..If you slow a car down to lessen the impact the belts wont lock even on impact.If you slam on breakes quickly you may flip the car..Circumstances are always different..Dont always count on those seat belts or airbags to work.
