Woman shot while driving near Fort Lauderdale

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - A woman has been hospitalized after she was shot overnight while driving in unincorporated Broward County.

Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies have opened up an investigation into the overnight shooting, which left a woman injured as she drove westbound on Broward Boulevard, early Friday morning.

Surveillance cameras showed the moment the woman lost control of her car just before 3 a.m.

Her car ended up in the parking lot of a liquor store near Northwest 31st Avenue after she crashed into a parked car.

Lauderhill Fire Rescue transported the woman to Broward Health Medical Center in unknown condition. Officials said her boyfriend was also in the car at the time of the shooting.

Police interviewed witnesses from a nearby business. They seemed to be focusing on one particular man. However, that man’s connection to the investigation is unknown.

Officials searched the car and along Broward Boulevard for clues.

Broward Boulevard was temporarily shutdown westbound at Northwest 31st Avenue, forcing motorists to find detours.

Officials are now looking into who fired the shot, causing the woman to lose control of her car.
