Lauderdale Lakes, FL (July 7, 2021) – A driver struck a median on State Road 7, crossed over oncoming lanes, and then slammed head-on into a covered concrete bus stop in the Lauderdale Lakes area early in the morning of Saturday, July 3.
Both people in the vehicle, a Mercedes-Benz SLK300, were transported to Broward Health Medical Center, where they were pronounced dead on arrival. The incident happened shortly before 2:00 a.m. on July 3 in the 2500 block of North State Road 7.
The car was headed northbound and approaching Northwest 26th Street when the driver crash, investigators said. Deputies with the sheriff’s office did not say what caused the driver to crash, and it’s currently unclear if any other vehicles or victims were involved.
The driver’s name hasn’t been released, and the passenger was also yet to be identified, per a report from the sheriff’s office. The investigation is ongoing.
Our thoughts are with everyone involved. We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the families of the deceased victims at this time.

Car accidents in Florida can result in serious or even debilitating injuries for victims. Those involved in serious Florida auto crashes may even lose their lives, depending on the severity of the incident. If you or someone you love has recently been injured in an auto accident in the Sunshine State, and you believe that the crash happened due to another driver’s negligence, you should contact a personal injury attorney in Florida at your earliest convenience.
