A CBS4 viewer sent in the video which we have cut off before the impact that killed five people early Wednesday morning in North Miami-Dade.
The crash- which you almost miss if you blink- is seen on the far left side of the screen. You can see a white pick-up truck, authorities say, was driven by 23-year old Alexandra Nalani Lefler side-swipe another car before slamming into a silver or white sedan head on.
Four people were inside the sedan at the time of the crash which occurred around 12:30 a.m. near the Miami Gardens Drive exit.
Lefler and all four people in the sedan were killed. The four people in the sedan have been identified as Miguel Gil, from Cooper City; Jose Labrador Gil, 52, and Gisela Gil Egui, 40, from Bridgeport, Connecticut and Gisela Margarita Egui, 71, from Venezuela.
Two of the people inside the sedan who were not wearing seat belts were ejected.
The incident caused other accidents because vehicles came onto the express lanes and collided with other cars, according to Florid Highway Patrol.READ MORE: CDC's New Mask Mandate Encourages People To Get COVID Vaccinations
Nameer Khattab, 58, and Katherine Warsch were injured in the accident and taken to the hospital.
Another man who was involved in the accident but not injured described the horror and chaos of the wreck.
“All you see boom… car coming toward me,” said Joao Gustavo Carabajal, 58, of Coconut Creek. “All you see is police coming fast and people dead.”
All northbound lanes of I-95 were closed for the accident investigation which took several hours.
CBS4’s Peter D’Oench spoke to a member of Leffler’s family but she declined to comment. A close friend of Leffler said she had only been here a few months from California and had been planning to return to San Francisco for good on Monday.
Gus Omana, a family member of the victims, told D’Oench “I can’t believe that this happened. I mean in order to get on the ramp you have to be going the right way. I don’t know how this happened. It’s terrible.”MORE NEWS: 'There's More Aggression, More Confrontational Attitude': Miami Beach Police Chief On Increasing Safety, Security
