BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A man apparently examining damage to his car following a minor accident on Florida’s Turnpike was killed seconds later when another car crashed into him — sending his body flying. It landed on the right shoulder of the Turnpike near Glades Road.
Florida Highway Patrol says a 22 year old woman from Pompano Beach was driving northbound on the Turnpike with a 21 year old male in the car. The woman allegedly hit the man just before the Glades Road exit. He apparently died on impact to the ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The victim, 29, lived in Lauderdale Lakes.
Florida Highway Patrol inexplicably does not provide the names of drivers involved in crashes, despite every other local municipality providing this public information which is legally accessible through Florida Statute 119.
There was no immediate information regarding charges. The Turnpike, initially closed Northbound around 6 a.m., was reopened by 11 a.m.
