OAKLAND PARK, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are investigating a deadly crash in Oakland Park.

The crash happened along Oakland Park Boulevard between Northeast Sixth Avenue and Dixie Highway, just after 1:15 a.m., Wednesday.

Surveillance video from a nearby Pump and Munch gas station showed what possibly led to the crash.

The video showed a speeding car swerving and police cruisers arriving soon after.

It remains unclear if the swerving car was the one involved in the crash.

Oakland Park Fire Rescue crews responded to the scene and found a car engulfed in flames wrapped around a pole.

Rescue crews were able to extinguish the flames and had to use the Jaws of Life to open up the mangled car to find one person that did not survive the crash.

7Skyforce hovered above as homicide detectives investigated into the morning.

The Broward Sherriff’s Office had the roadway shut down in both directions between Dixie Highway and Sixth Avenue for several hours, but it has since reopened.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
