A Miami-Dade accident that happened in the early morning hours on New Year’s day ended fatally for four people. According to Florida Highway Patrol, the accident happened shortly before 4 a.m. near the intersection of Flagler Street and Northwest 79th Avenue.
Florida Highway Patrol released a statement, saying that a Hyundai Elantra was trying to turn left onto Flagler St. when it was hit by a Chevrolet Tahoe.
Four people inside the Hyundai (one woman and three men), died at the scene. The police haven’t released their names so far.
Three people inside the Tahoe (three sixteen-year-old boys) were taken to Kendall Regional Hospital with injuries that were described as non-life-threatening.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers are investigating the reasons for the Miami-Dade accident; more specifically, if drugs, alcohol, or speed were a factor for the fatal crash.
According to the officials, the Hyundai had a blinking red light when it made its turn. The Tahoe had a blinking yellow light at the time of the collision.
