Shortly before 10 a.m. on Jan. 30, BSO deputies responded to a crash in the 2400 block of North Dixie Highway in Pompano Beach. According to traffic homicide detectives, the driver of a Ford Explorer, Ronald Campbell, was heading southbound on North Dixie Highway when he sideswiped a Chevrolet Silverado, which was also heading southbound. After the initial impact, Campbell continued heading southbound and struck a Mitsubishi Outlander, driven by Margaret Healy. Healy was stopped at a traffic signal at North Dixie Highway and East Copans Road. 

The impact with the Outlander pushed the vehicle forward and set off a chain reaction crash in which four other cars stopped at the traffic signal were also impacted.
