UPDATE at 11p: BSO’s traffic homicide investigators have released the following update: the 6-year-old girl injured in the crash died shortly after arriving at Broward Health Medical Center. One other child is in extremely critical condition. The two others are in serious condition but have stabilized. 

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (From Broward Sheriff’s Office) — Four children and a woman were injured Thursday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash in Deerfield Beach.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office Traffic Homicide Unit is investigating the cause of the crash, which happened just before 4 p.m. in front of the Bazaar supermarket. Investigators say a Nissan Altima was heading into the supermarket’s parking lot when it collided with an eastbound Ford Ranger pickup.

Four children, ranging in age from 4 to 11, in the Altima were injured, as was the driver. It appears that at least some of the children were not properly restrained. The two occupants of the pickup were not injured and remained on scene to talk to investigators. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue transported the five injured people to Broward Health Medical Center.

Hillsboro Boulevard was closed for hours between Dixie Highway and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard as investigators analyzed the scene, talked to witnesses and collected evidence.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact Traffic Homicide Det. Anthony Morales at 954-321-4840 or report information anonymously to Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or www.browardcrimestoppers.org.
