POMPANO BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A Boca Raton man is being questioned by police after he allegedly ran a red light at the intersection of Powerline Road and West Sample, killing one man and injuring several other people.
The Broward County Sheriff's Office says 35-year-old Dunold Jean of Northeast Second Avenue in Boca ran a red light while heading south on Powerline in a 1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. After allegedly running the red light, he collided with 2003 Honda CRV being driven Justin Matthew Crouse of Fort Lauderdale. Crouse, who was 31, was ejected from his car and pinned underneath it when it rolled over.
Crouse was not wearing a seatbelt and pronounced dead shortly after the accident.
Investigators say Jean also struck three other vehicles heading eastbound before finally stopping. Several people in those vehicles were transported by Pompano Beach Fire Rescue and Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue to Broward Health North for treatment.
The intersection was closed for hours. Police say it is unclear why Dunold Jean ran the red light. Charges, police say, are pending.
