North Lauderdale, FL (May 31, 2021) – A two-car crash ended the lives of four individuals on the afternoon of Saturday, May 29. At approximately 3:28 p.m., police and paramedics responded to the scene.
According to reports, the wreck occurred on Bailey Road near Rock Island Road when a 2017 Nissan Rogue was headed west on Bailey Road. The vehicle was approaching the intersection with Rock Island Road at the same time as a 2013 Toyota Camry was headed east on Bailey Road.
The Camry was attempting to turn to head north on Rock Island when the Rogue struck the front passenger side of it. The impact forced the Rogue to rotate and slide across the road, onto the sidewalk, and into a concrete wall.
Responders with North Lauderdale Fire and Rescue along with other emergency crews were called to assist at the scene. Three were pronounced deceased on-site while a fourth was transported to Broward Health Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead.
The Camry’s driver was transported to a nearby medical center where she received treatment for non-life-threatening injuries. The police in North Lauderdale continue to investigate.
We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased at this time.
