Broward County, FL (February 12, 2024) – On Sunday, February 11th, when a 23-year-old emergency medical technician lost her life while assisting a crash victim on Interstate 95 in Broward County. The incident occurred just after 4 a.m. on the southbound lanes of I-95, north of State Road 84. The sequence of events occurred as a 2019 red Kia Forte collided with a concrete median, blocking two center lanes. Subsequently, a black Mercedes 2015 GLA250 struck the Kia. A 2015 silver Cadillac slowed down to avoid the collision, but a 2023 black Lexus IS300 failed to stop in time, crashing into the Cadillac and ultimately hitting the woman assisting at the scene. Moreover, a 2016 black Ford Explorer was involved in the crash, colliding with the Kia, the concrete barrier, and then the Cadillac. Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue responded promptly, discovering the woman deceased at the scene and transporting the injured to Broward Health Medical Center.
Our deepest condolences to the victim’s family and friends, and we wish a swift recovery to those injured.
