Unfortunately, Thursday turned out to be a deadly day for South Florida motorists. According to the Miami Herald, four people lost their lives in automobile accidents in the roads of Miami Dade and Broward.
Newspaper Delivery Person Rear Ended
A contract newspaper carrier for the Miami Herald on her way to collect the morning papers at a warehouse died in an accident. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Carolina Cuadra’s 1996 Toyota was rear-ended by a 2002 Dodge Pickup truck near the exit ramp at Northwest 36th Street at about 1 a.m. Ms. Cuadra was accompanied by her father, Issac Antonio Lopez, who also died as a result of the collision. Mr. Lopez was visiting his daughter from out of town for two weeks and was helping her with the delivery on Thursday. The driver of the pickup truck, 45 year-old Jeff Hood from Miami, suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene. The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating whether alcohol played any role in this accident.
Two Motorcyclists Injured in Broward
Shortly thereafter, two motorcyclists missed a turn, hit the retaining wall on the southbound ramp from I-595 to the Florida Turnpike and hurtled over the ramp. One of the riders, identified as 22 year-old Sara Ramirez Sandoval of Dania Beach, died at the scene. The other rider, unidentified as of yet, was transported to the hospital in critical condition.
Hit and Run Accident Kills on I-595
A few hours later a driver was killed after being ejected from her vehicle when it was struck by another car. Bertha J. Rodriguez-Garcia of Sunrise was traveling west on her Honda CR-V when 36 year-old Wilbert Saintubert of Fort Lauderdale lost control of his car after being struck by another vehicle that subsequently abandoned the scene.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our condolences to the relatives and friends of the deceased. Their irreparable loss makes our community a lesser place. Our thoughts are with them in this time of sorrow.
