911 calls released after fatal Davie collision involving cyclists

DAVIE, FLA. (WSVN) - The Davie Police Department has released the 911 calls from a fatal collision in November that killed two cyclists and injured several others.

Police said the driver was reportedly distracted at the time when she slammed into a group of about 15 bicyclists along State Road 84, east of Southwest 148th Avenue.

Several witnesses at the scene called 911 to get help for the badly injured cyclists as can be heard in the newly released recordings.

“OK, I just saw a bunch of bikers, and they got hit by a car,” said one caller.

“Basically, you got a lady that just went through the group,” said another. “Plowed them all down.”

“Please hurry, please hurry. They look really bad,” said another witness. “They’re in really, really bad shape. Please send someone.”

The 33-year-old woman behind the wheel of the black Honda Fit that struck the cyclists stayed on scene and cooperated with police.

Investigators said they did not believe speed, alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash.

“It’s really, really bad,” said one of the callers. “There are possible deaths.”

The woman could be heard as one of the voices in the 911 calls looking for help.

“I’m stopped right now. I’m stopped right now. I didn’t even see them,” she said in the call.

“Ma’am, what happened?” the dispatcher asked the woman in the call.

“I hit a pack of bikers. There’s a bunch of them on the floor. Oh my God, oh my God.”

One of the victims, 53-year-old Denise Marsh, died at the scene of the collision.

Friends of Marsh said she was one of the safest riders they knew.

Marsh leaves behind a husband and two children.

A second victim, Carlos Rodriguez, succumbed to his injuries a day after the crash.

While no arrests have been made, the incident remains under investigation.
