2 killed, 1 hurt in Davie rollover crash; Griffin Road shut down near University Drive

DAVIE, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are investigating a violent rollover wreck in Davie that left two men dead, sent another to the hospital and led to road closures along several blocks of Griffin Road.

Davie Police and Fire Rescue units responded to the scene of the wreck in the area of Griffin Road and Southwest 73rd Avenue, just after 7 p.m., Tuesday.

7News cameras captured the white sedan that was involved with the roof apparently torn off.

According to investigators, the car, believed to be a Kia, was heading west on Griffin Road and was either making a left turn or a U-turn when a Ford Mustang that was heading east collided with it.

The passenger in the Kia was pronounced dead at the scene.

Paramedics have transported both drivers to an area hospital, where the driver of the sedan succumbed to his injuries.

Officials said it appears the driver of the Mustang is going to be OK.

Davie Police Lt. Mark Leone stressed the importance of remaining vigilant on the road while driving at night.

“In an area like this, where it is not the most well-lit, it’s very dangerous when cars are speeding because you can’t make a determination of how fast that car is coming while it’s coming directly at you,” he said.

Investigators said they are attempting to determine whether or not speeding was a factor in the crash.

It remains unclear who was at fault.
