HALLANDALE BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Two people have been transported to the hospital after a serious crash involving four vehicles in Hallandale Beach.
Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue crews responded to the scene along the intersection of Hallandale Beach Boulevard and Three Islands Boulevard just before 10:30 a.m., Monday.
Two victims, both occupants of the Nissan, were transported to nearby hospitals, one as a trauma patient and the other with minor injuries.
7SkyForce HD flew over the scene where two pieces of a black Tesla Model X could be seen on the roadway.
A white Nissan GT-R could also be seen near the median with extensive front-end damage.
Officials said the Nissan was speeding down Hallandale Beach Boulevard when it ran a red light and slammed into the Tesla.
“That car was flying. It hit the Model X Tesla right in the back,” said Ronnie Gnesin, a witness. “The Tesla flew apart. Next thing you know, the back wheels are flying this way. They hit this car over here.”
“I seen this white car just driving like crazy, passing all the cars as fast as he could,” said Jesse Dynak. “Then, I hear, ‘Boom!’ and all the smoke. He must have hit the black car.”
The driver of the Tesla was identified as Jose Diaz, who was seen making the sign of the cross moments after the crash.
Diaz said the white car came so fast that he didn’t even see him. He said he just felt the bang.
The back of Diaz’s car hit a red Mustang as a result of the crash.
“The Nissan lost control and went on that side of Hallandale, hit a tree and then he just got taken to the ambulance,” said Gnesin.
“I hear the big bang,” said Tony Peart. “The tire came off one of the cars, went over my car.”
Peart said the driver of the Nissan was OK.
“I went over to help the guy in the white car, because the car had a lot of smoke, and I thought it was going to blow,” said Peart. “He came out unscathed, and he was kissing the floor. It was a little blood coming from his nose, and he said, ‘Oh, I just wanna see my girl.'”
7News cameras captured one piece of the Tesla being towed away from the scene. The driver behind the wheel of the Tesla was able to walk away from the crash with what seemed to be a minor injury to his leg.
“Everyone seemed to have survived,” said Gnesin. “It wasn’t tragic.”
Both victims taken to hospital are expected to recover.
