DORAL, FLA. (WSVN) - A woman has died after a crash involving a dump truck that rolled over in Doral.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews and Doral Police responded to the scene along the westbound lanes of Northwest 36th Street and 82nd Avenue at approximately 11:45 a.m., Monday.
Hours after the crash, police identified 61-year-old Dalal Moukhallaleh as the driver who was killed and 38-year-old Jean Blanco as the driver of the dump truck.
According to police, the driver of the dump truck had swerved to avoid hitting the woman’s car, but that may have inadvertently caused the truck to land on top of the car. They also added two other vehicles were involved in the crash.
7SkyForce hovered over the scene where firefighters could be seen shoveling out dirt from the dump truck that landed on top of the red car.
A technical response team responded to the scene to rescue the trapped Moukhallaleh in the red car, but she succumbed to her injuries at the scene. A yellow tarp could be seen covering part of the red car.
Blanco, meanwhile, was not injured.
A man could be heard screaming while lying on the ground of a nearby parking lot after learning about the death of his loved one.
“I just heard someone crying, and that’s it,” witness Celeste Leal said. “Then, I came out, and I saw the accident.”
Crews up-righted the dump truck and towed it away from the area.
The area where the crash happened had been blocked off while Miami-Dade Police investigators looked into what happened. The area has since reopened to traffic.
