FLORIDA’S HALLANDALE BEACH – A witness describes the minutes following an incident in which the driver of a stalled Jeep and an 11-year-old boy were killed.
The accident occurred on the 800 block of Hallandale Beach Boulevard on Saturday night, according to Hallandale Beach police.
When a good Samaritan Uber driver and his 11-year-old son stopped to help a Jeep driver push the vehicle off the road, a gray Ford driver slammed into the Jeep, its driver, the father, and his kid from behind, according to police.
According to authorities, the Jeep driver and the 11-year-old child died as a result of their injuries after being brought to a local hospital. Two more people were injured.
When Jazzy Alonso observed the disaster scene, she was travelling with her 5-year-old son and husband. Her spouse recorded the incident on video.
“I spotted someone on the ground in the middle of the street as I came closer to try to go around it,” Alonso added. “That’s when I spotted Flanigan’s employees and a woman sprinting away.” I’m guessing it’s a member of the family. (I) began to scream.”
The scene, according to Alonso, was sad.
“I started crying because I saw one body and another further down and I had no idea what was going on,” she explained. “My son was there, and he kept asking, ‘What is that?'” said the mother. What exactly is it? Is that a corpse?’ I tried to get him to look aside, but kids are naturally fascinated, and he ended up talking about it for an hour. It’s difficult for him to take his mind off it.”
The Ford’s driver remained at the scene, cooperated with authorities, and was treated and released from a local hospital, according to police.
The victims’ identities have not been revealed by the authorities.
